When farmers and entrepreneurs take raw agricultural products like vegetables, grains, or milk and turn them into something value-added – like jams or bread or cheese – they not only increase their income, but also contribute to community and rural economic development, enhancing food choices for consumers.
Join this webinar to learn more about the FY 2016 application period for the Value-Added Producer Grants (VAPG) program, which provides competitively awarded grants to individual independent agricultural producers, groups of independent producers, producer-controlled entities, organizations representing agricultural producers, and farmer or rancher cooperatives to create or expand value-added producer-owned businesses.
