The demand for local food has risen over the last decade. However, a growing number of consumers also want more convenience built into their local food choices – flavorful options that are less perishable than farm-fresh products and require minimal preparation at home. This program will introduce Extension educators and small-business owners to general principles for successfully creating valueadded foods and where to find specific guidance at each developmental stage.
