Profiles of Local Businesses and Resources

In the spotlight

theHumm's cover story each month is always about a local artist. We also publish profiles of local farmers and food producers throughout the year.

On this page you'll find a summary of all profiles currently available on the website, including a few of other local businesses and resources that we've turned the spotlight on.

Don't forget to check out the photo galleries that go with many of these profiles.
