MIFFS is dedicated to supporting the many faces of farming, particularly our beginning and historically underserved farmers. As a statewide nonprofit, MIFFS has been connecting farmers to resources and opportunities since 1998. With each project, program, and activity, we endeavor to build a food system that is stronger and healthier for our families and communities, based on fair prices, established through local relationships, and committed to environmentally-friendly practices.

MIFFS Guiding Principals include:

 

  • Valuing the land and people connections

  • Advocating for the use of good science and cultural knowledge

  • Demonstrating risk taking and relentless persistence

  • Requiring listening and teamwork
