Farmers:  We Need Your Input!

Join us in:

HIAWATHA, KS: Wednesday, Nov. 13th, 7:00 PM, Highland Community College

The Douglas County Food Policy Council has launched a study to examine the potential for a food hub in our area that would link small to mid-sized farmers with larger markets, to help increase farmers’ income and profitability.
If you are:

ü  An experienced farmer
ü  A new farmer
ü  Raise produce, meat, dairy, eggs or grain
ü  Produce corn, wheat or soybeans but want to diversify
ü  Sell at farmers markets and are thinking about expanding
ü  Want to produce more, but spend less time marketing…

… We want to hear from you!

Please join other farmers on November 13th in a discussion with Anthony Flaccavento, a Virginia farmer and President of SCALE, Inc, who is leading this study.   For more information: www.douglas-county.com/sites/fpc
