FOOD + AGRICULTURE
Growing local food and agriculture opportunity.
Farmers and farmland are at the heart of our rural places, and central to a new era of health and wealth. Getting local food on our menus, in our schools, and into larger markets nearby can help us build commerce and community. It’s part of making sure everyone here eats and lives well.
Food & Ag Businesses
Making local food work for buyers and suppliers requires attending to the many stops along the way from farm to fork. We support and connect farmers, their suppliers, distributors, processors and others needed to move local products to market.
Good Food for All
Good food and all that goes with it — friends, family, nature, and neighbors – are community essentials. New Growth and partners work to connect, support, and advocate for people and programs that build good food into everyday lives
Farm to Fork Summit
This annual gathering of local food and farm interests is where west central Missouri builds the connections, knowledge, and will needed to secure good food for all and family farms for our rural economies.
