Tim Killen

Tim has called Montana home for over 18 years.  After moving to Missoula to attend the University of Montana, he and his wife moved to the Flathead valley in 2004, and have considered it home ever since. Tim started his career in sales in the bike shop, and was sales manager of Glacier Cyclery in Whitefish for over 8 years.  A friendly smile, and an honest conversation is what you’ll get when you work with Tim.  When he’s not dedicating his time to working with clients, you can typically find Tim out on the mountain bike trails, finding fresh lines skiing in the back country, or paddling one of our gorgeous stretches of rivers here in Northwest Montana.  With a wealth of local knowledge, Tim is more than happy to help you find your Montana dream!  Call him today at 406.897.4289.

New Nonprofit Collective Aims to Strengthen Local Food Systems

BY MYERS REECE // AUG 11, 2019 // FLATHEAD BEACON

Glacier FEAST is a newly formed nonprofit collective whose mission is to strengthen local food systems in the Flathead Valley.

Local growers and food advocates formed Glacier FEAST (Farmers and Eaters Advocating Sustainability Together) “with the intention of supporting the expansion of Flathead Valley’s food growing economy into a thriving community-based system that is values-based and enhances the community’s economic, nutritional, social and environmental health,” according to a press release.

“Recognizing that a fully-functioning system includes everyone (if you eat, you’re in!), Glacier FEAST, a project of FarmHands Nourish, seeks to build awareness and help connect the dots in the system by bringing folks to the table from all parts of the local food system, including: producers, processors, distributors, consumers, and recycling/recovery,” the group stated.
