The WSU Food Systems Program has grown from historical roots of what was the Small Farms Program, built on many years of dedicated support for Washington Farmers. We now venture to broaden our objectives, taking a holistic approach to supporting the Washington food system.
Small farms are important to Washington State, with significant numbers of them found in every county. Like other small businesses, small farms can be valuable community assets, generating income and employment opportunities.
Farmers in northeast Washington have many options for marketing their various crop and livestock products. In fact, the number of options is only limited by one’s own imagination!
