Upper Michigan Farmers Asked To Join Assessment Effort

MARQUETTE, MI – Great Lakes Radio News – The Marquette Food Co-op is looking into assessing the needs of local farmers in order to ensure a steady supply of high quality local food for consumers. The Co-op has teamed up with M-S-U Extension, The Eastern Upper Peninsula Food Hub Project, and Northern Michigan University’s Center for Community and Economic Development to conduct a comprehensive survey of U.P. Farms that sell directly to consumers.

Natasha Gill from the Co-op and Dr. Steve Nelson joined Walt Lindala this morning to discuss the program. According to Gill, the survey is inclusive of conventional, natural, and organic farms of all sizes. Upon completion, only the compiled information will be shared with survey participants, the agencies working on the project, state officials, and those interested in U.P. agriculture.
