Recruiting Small Farm Produce Growers in the Delta

Mississippi Delta Council for Farmworker Opportunities, Inc.’s Beginner Farmer and Rancher Program, funded by USDA Rural Development is starting up again!

With our community partner organizations, we are recruiting and training a minimum of sixty produce growers to address the demand for fresh and “value added” fruits and vegetables.

Interested in joining our other growers to sell produce at farmers markets? And to larger buyers (like schools)? Developing a straightforward cash flow and business plan for production?

Interested in purchasing fresh Delta produce from local growers?

Contact us at (662) 326-0272.

Here are photos of some of our produce growers participating in a beginning farmer-rancher training:
