Local Foods

The Local Foods program has a major focus on connecting producers and end users along the food value chain to grow the local economy and enhance the availability and variety of locally produced food. Activities include value added products like maple candy, local farmers market and farm stand growth and stability, producer trainings on marketing and branding along with traditional subject matter trainings from meats to vegetables. The goal is to increase profitability for farmers and product availability and variety to consumers. We help to make connection and develop markets for the local agricultural community.
