Will be working with Local Roots on the details for the November 20th, 2013 face to face meeting of the network. The preliminary agenda specifies interaction with local producers, cooperative members and maybe auction leadership. Beyond specialty crops this will likely include Dairy and Meats. We are scheduled from 9:30 to 1. Is there an interest in visiting a dairy or meat processing facility nearby afterwards? Certainly not promising this is possible, but willing to explore if response is positive.
