In the fall of 2012 the Wallace Center awarded 4 organizations with grants through the Increasing Farmer Success in the Deep South program. Over the year additional partners have joined the project. We are pleased to share a series of Increasing Farmer Success Compelling Stories highlighting their work.
These anecdotes describe the ways in which our partners in the Deep South are making real impacts on their local food systems. Through providing food for farm-to-school programs, expanding wholesale markets, and developing new projects and training programs, these stories give insight into the increasing success of farmers in Deep South.
