Niche meat producers…

DRAFT Connect with others who want to work on developing a strong local meat economy, learn from other producers about shared challenges and creative work-arounds, learn about regional-solutions in the works around the state, pinch points where a change would open the pathways to strong and functional value chains (e.g. is it education for producers, butchers, regulatory issues, infrastructure needs, marketing, etc.?) – and ultimately more sales opportunities. Begin to form a network of people from across the state and many different backgrounds who could work together on these issues.
