April 7, 2015 - Author: Susan Cocciarelli
Financing Farming in the U.S. has explored financing and data issues with stakeholders across the country since 2009. This document reviews learnings from several years of FFUS-convened research and dialogue on financing production for regional food systems. It identifies methods used in localities across the country, both for using and developing data, and for building the networks and relationships that will help support the small and midsized farming sector to grow.
