Two Iowa communities learn about opportunities to support local immigrant populations with an interest in farming enterprises.
What are the emerging possibilities for Iowa farmers to expand their local and regional farmer networks?
Engaging new Latino immigrant farmers in established networks can create opportunities for mutual learning about production and processing techniques and crop varieties, and collaborative development of new markets. Expanding these farmer networks also opens doors for retiring farmers looking for beginning farmers to whom to transition their farm operations.
