These goals are an important part of our strategy to build sustainable
systems in Indiana. We are always looking for more information on what
others are doing and what literature sources are available. We would like to
build more market infrastructure (increase the effectiveness of farmers'
markets, establish wholesale markets and marketing pools, etc.) in our quest
to boost the sustainability of family style farming. Another facet of our
strategy is to involve cooperative extension in this process.
Any contributions (real examples and literature citations) would be
appreciated. I'll accept philosophical considerations only if you will agree
to receive two shovelfuls or each one you toss.
