The Unique Challenges Facing Medium-Sized Farms


new report from the nonprofit Ecotrust examines the unique challenges facing “Ag of the Middle” — growers too big to rely solely on CSAs or farmer’s markets, but too small to compete with industrial operations. According to the report, these farmers have few options when it comes to managing distribution, product packaging, sales, and other services associated with getting their products to market. Ecotrust has new initiative geared towards helping medium-sized food producers with these problems.

We hear about the report and Ecotrust’s approach to solving the problems facing “Ag of the Middle” producers.
