Connecting beginning and historically underserved farmers to each other and resource opportunities; ensuring social justice, environmental stewardship, and profitability.
Farm Development Centers are spaces for beginning farmers to farm without high startup costs such as land and equipment, providing opportunities for farmers share knowledge with each other, market cooperatively, and begin a business with less risk.
MIFFS is playing a critical role in making smaller-scale
farming an attractive and viable livelihood.
MIFFS works with partners to build a safer food value chain. We provide workshops and resources that connect farmers to MI GroupGAP and other food safety programs locally and nationally.
