In 2016 REAP Investment Board secured a USDA Rural Business Development Grant (RBDG) to increase the number of grape, fruit and vegetables producers supporting wineries in North Dakota. An outreach event was held at Fluffy Fields Winery & Vineyard in Dickinson on March 10, 2017.
Attendees were introduced to the emerging market for locally grown foods by North Dakota’s winery industry, as well as other market opportunities. Attendees networked with resource professionals and were provided the following resources to assist them in exploring their individual opportunities as growers.
