Also do a search for "healthy food stores in North Dakota" and many links turn up.  You could also do a search for "Farms and farm stands" in your area too and see what comes up.  You may have to travel for food, if you have access to a vehicle.  I"m in California and we have TONS of great supermarkets, however my family and i still have to travel at least 30 minutes one way (sometimes 60 minutes one way) to buy the type of food that is TRULY GMO free, local, etc.  

There is also a sticky post in this group that has tons of great recipes.

awww .  . . that sucks.  In addition to the farmers markets, you can see if there are local farms and farm stands in your area.  You could stock up as much produce as possible and can and freeze them to get you threw the winter months.  YouTube has TONS of video's on canning, freezing, etc (if you don't do any of that already).

I live in the middle of farmland USA! lol But unfortunately all the farms grow nasty GMO foods, soy beans, wheat, sugar beets... all GMO too :( I have tons of farmer friends. They all grow their own foods and trade with each other. But I have nothing to trade with them. I think I will try to make it to more farmers markets.

Don't worry about GMO free before you worry about unprocessed.

Eat whole foods first. If you can only find GMO whole foods, it's still a better choice than processed ANYTHING.
