Beyond connections, we also help to develop tools, like the Young Organic Stewards program that provides training for the next generation of farmers – and an online community for young farmers.
Got Local brings farmers and buyers together to make connections and build understanding. Targeted at food service and institutional buyers, Got Local events have brought farmers together with chefs, schools, hospitals, and other institutions.
Farm Transitions is a program that is providing information and assistance to farmers and farmland owners to help them plan for the next stage of their farm.
We have also helped to develop a number of “how to” publications that range from starting a farmstay to marketing local food.
