Michigan Food & Farming Systems (MIFFS)
Mission: Connecting beginning and historically underserved farmers to each other and resource opportunities; ensuring social justice, environmental stewardship, and profitability.
Vision: MIFFS is playing a critical role in making smaller-scale farming an attractive and viable livelihood
MIFFS is dedicated to supporting the many faces of farming, particularly our beginning and historically underserved farmers. These farmers grow diversified crops and raise animals, they live in rural and urban areas, and they farm individually, in groups, on incubator farms, and as cooperatives. As a statewide, membership-based nonprofit organization, MIFFS has been connecting farmers to resources and opportunities since 1998. We honor each farmer’s passion for working the land and growing the food, while also recognizing that they can and must do it in a way that is viable and sustainable for the earth and for their pocketbooks.
