Farm-To-School

Hello, Farmers and Ranchers! Are you looking for a new wholesale market for your products?
There is a vast untapped market near you: LOCAL SCHOOLS. There are area schools interested in finding out how they might be part of the ever growing farm-to-school movement. These schools are interested in discovering how to produce local agricultural products so they can incorporate them into their food service.

We want to help facilitate the farm-to-school plate process. By working... together and pooling our resources we can get organized and start supplying some of the food needs for our schools.

You may think your farm is too small to sell into the market. Our goal is to accommodate all farm sizes, with the ultimate goal of creating a strong local market for farm-to-school products that will help increase economic opportunities for farmers in our rural community.

Please contact us if you are interested in learning more and/or getting involved in this farm-to-school effort. Call the Hickory County Health Department and ask for Dawn at 417-745-2138.
