Are you a specialty crop producer, grocery store vendor, or community member interested in learning more about farm to grocery in Montana? Buying local is a trend that continues to grow every year and though each Farm to Grocery relationship is unique, they generally share similar values and goals: seeking to provide nutritious, locally-sourced food while supporting local economies and educating communities about the value of Montanan agriculture. For farmers and food processors, building a relationship with a grocery store can diversify your customer base, create a stable market for your products, and provide opportunities to engage the community in your agricultural operation. For grocery store managers, buying fresh food from local producers can earn your store recognition and increase sales, improve the taste and quality of your products, and provide more information about the safety and origins of your food.
