Northeast Dairy Business Innovation Center: Dairy Business Viability & Technical Assistance Grant
The Northwest Regional Planning Commission was granted $27,000 on behalf of the Healthy Roots Collaborative to provide a range of technical services to 3 Vermont farmers and processors. Over the next 18 months, Healthy Roots will be working alongside Blair Johnson and the Franklin County Natural Resources Conservation District to provide support to Stony Pond Farm, Aires-Hill Farm & Creamery and Villa Villekulla Farm.
The Northeast Dairy Business Innovation Center (NE-DBIC) provides support to dairy businesses through projects that promote the development, production, marketing, and distribution of dairy products. Projects target dairy farms and processors while providing additional support through market research and technical assistance. The Center's investment and project strategy promotes innovation and resiliency for regional production of dairy products.
