2016 Growing Food Businesses Workshops

We are so grateful to all who attended, supported, facilitated, and promoted these workshops, and for the great energy and resources they brought together!

Read about the Successes, Challenges, and Boots-On-the Ground testimony from 2016 participants.


Bringing together growers and business owners with resource people such as DPHHS, county sanitarians, the Montana Food and Ag Development Centers, and extension, the workshops create opportunities to build relationships and networks, and offer strategies and assistance in formulating next steps to continue growing our local Montana food economy.

These workshops are for food entrepreneurs, direct market farmers, state and local health officials, business and economic development directors, local food non-profits, and folks with cottage food business ideas.
