To support the development and marketing of locally grown agricultural products to enhance the lives of local citizens.
The Northeast Iowa Food & Farm Coalition has been formed to begin implementation of the strategic plan designed to build a stronger local food and farm economy in Northeast Iowa. The Coalition has identified the following goals.
1) Provide an opportunity for existing and new producers to diversify;
2) Explore the development of regional processing and storage facilities to add value to all agricultural products in the area; and
3) Increase sale consumption of locally grown food on a local, regional and national level.
