This program supports Minnesota agricultural producers and processors in expanding markets for Minnesota products. Two categories of grants will be awarded: business planning, feasibility study, marketing, and succession planning; and equipment purchases or physical improvements. Applications that have a meat processing, Farm to School component or are addressing a Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) or similar type of food safety plan will receive priority.
Proposals must be received by October 21, 2013.

As always, I am happy to help you apply.
