Get Listed: New USDA Effort to Connect Farmers with Local Customers
A new USDA effort aims to make it easier for your organization or business to reach more customers. Building on the success of the National Farmers Market Directory, USDA has developed national directories for On-Farm Markets, CSA Enterprises, and Food Hubs designed specifically to communicate operating information, product selection, terms of payment, and location to customers. The online directory will allow you to enter your baseline information in minutes, then update it anytime you want. Free of charge to registering organizations and businesses, the directories will be available to the public by January 2015. Visit the main registration and update webpage for more information and directions.
