Beginning and Underserved Farmer Network


Knowledge with the Next Generation of Agriculture  

The Michigan Beginning and Underserved Farmer Network is a statewide network aimed at connecting farmers with resources and to each other. The goal of the network is to build knowledge and connections that lead to innovative and creative problem solving for success. Networks have been built around a common region or population to bring a community together to build stronger bonds and create an effective group. 

Activities within the MIFFS farmer networks are supported by funding from USDA office of Outreach and Advocacy, USDA Farm Service Agency, Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and more.

MIFFS continues to create new networks to connect more farmers. For more information about farmer networks or to join one of our existing networks, email us at

Activities include:

  • USDA program navigation (for urban and rural producers)

  • Demonstrations at WIA Farm Development Center Workshops
