The “Farmers, Ranchers, and Gatherers of the Southwest” Project seeks to strengthen the economic sustainability of local food business enterprises of farmers, ranchers, gatherers, and artisanal food makers in southern Arizona by providing no-cost marketing strategies and resources to increase their presence in new and existing markets with an indirect, producer-to-consumer, online marketing platform and mobile application. The project goal is to provide a simple, no-cost indirect pathway for Local Food Producers (LFP) as a means to develop new marketing channels to reach consumers, retailers, institutions, culinary tourists, and restaurants.
