Summit on Local Economies-SOLE

The Summit on Local Economies – SOLE was held in Medora on April 14 and 15.

As part of the conference, FARRMS commissioned several reports on the Farm and Food Economy in 14 North Dakota counties; a light processing feasibility study; a working model menu for infrastructure to support farming and local economies and Next Steps for ND REAP ZONES.

This work was paid for by a Rural Business Opportunity Grant from USDA. Many thanks to everyone who had a part in creating this valuable information.
