Increasing Visibility and Sales for Farmers and Producers

Many farmers currently travel long distances to sell their products to keep their business alive. The Come & Get It project is designed to help farmers access more local sales channels for their products, decreasing the inputs needed for them to make a living while bolstering local food markets and increasing the health of our rural communities. It’s a win-win!
