Growing Your Brand
Consumers are increasingly interested in knowing where their food comes from and how it is produced.
This local foods movement provides a wonderful opportunity for producers to connect on a personal level with consumers. It is an opportunity to create, maintain, and support profitable, sustainable, and affordable food production and distribution schemes with the ultimate outcome of healthier diets and healthier people.
The local foods movement encompasses farmers, food processors and distributors, community gardens, farmers’ markets, community volunteers, economic development, food security, and better nutrition for children and adults—all areas in which Extension has deep expertise, dedicated and skilled professionals, and decades of documented success.
