Regional Know Your Farmer Resources
The USDA setup a know your farmer resources program 2 1/2 years ago. This new initiative called Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food has been growing across the country. It is setup up with a commitment to help farmers and ranchers of all sizes take advantage of new opportunities, meet the growing demand for local and regional food and succeed in the diverse marketplace.
Over the past two years great accomplishments have been made with new tools have been developed. One is the Know Your Farmers, Know Your Food Compass, an electronic document and interactive map. By eliciting the national conversation about where our food comes from, it show cases farmers, ranchers, businesses and communities around the country that are tapping into these opportunities.
