We believe agriculture in SW Michigan, Berrien County in particular, is an asset to value, protect and enjoy. Here we have an abundance of fruits, vegetables and livestock and a variety of microclimates. In fact, just up the road a bit in Benton Harbor is a fruit market where farmers bring their products. This fruit market was, at one time, the largest in the world!
Our goal is to ensure that local produce and other agricultural products are available to individuals and organizations now and in the future.
- To enhance the supply of local agricultural products by advocating opportunities for local family farms to increase better access for local consumers of locally grown food.
- To facilitate access to local agricultural products by enhancing collaborative efforts between farmers and other public and private resources at the local, state and federal levels
- To enhance demand for local agricultural products through consumer education.We welcome inquiries of all kinds. Please contact us here.
