Heirloom Vegetable Production Strategies to Improve Family Farm Income

Summary

Our project seeks to improve the economic viability of family farmers by producing sustainable and organic heirloom vegetables. Participants will utilize high tunnel technologies to minimize pest pressures, and will cooperatively market artisan value-added sauces to expand the market for “less than perfect” produce.
