Scaling up for Growth Farm Contact Form
In the Fall of 2017, 7 small businesses, along with 1 non-profit community organization and 1 cooperative partnered together and received a $500,000 Local Food Promotion Program Grant aimed at creating a closed food system (no waste) within the Portland Food Shed (defined as a 100 mile radius around Portland, ME).

This grant is specifically looking at data around how the vertical integration of the supply chain will reduce barriers to growth for small and mid-scale farmers and significantly increase the amount of local food that flows into the mainstream food system. The “mainstream food system” is defined as the place where a majority of people buy or eat their food – specifically in grocery stores, schools, institutions such as hospitals and nursing homes, colleges and universities and restaurants.

This is a 3-year grant and the Farm Services Program (https://www.gpcog.org/local-food/#scaling-for-growth) will provide free assistance to farms over the course of 3 years to help them grow their businesses. We will provide resources to expand markets, simplify business operations, reduce cost, increase revenue and manage surplus. In exchange, we will request that participating farms share data around production, growth in revenue, reduction of cost, increased efficiency.
