We have reached labor capacity in our on-farm processing kitchen, and we need a value-added product that uses up large quantities of peaches and tomatoes. I really want to make peach salsa and know that it would sell well at the farmers market and b2b.

Goosefoot, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is developing a shared, incubator commercial kitchen on Whidbey Island, a rural, geographically isolated community, to help our farmers and food entrepreneurs develop value added food products. The facility will also serve as an emergency food preparation and service site. We need $350,000 in funding for remodeling and extensive mechanical/plumbing updates necessary for an aging kitchen space that Goosefoot owns. Funding for equipment has been secured, architectural drawings are complete, and a positive pre-permit conference was held with our county planning department. This project is ready to go once we receive infrastructure funding. Goosefoot will manage the kitchen, pay for operating costs as a programmatic expense, and offer food business workshops.

Hi Team,

I run a stone flour milling operation in Carbondale, CO; Roaring Fork Mill. I work with local farmers growing heritage and ancient grains, stone milling said grain into flour. I'm looking to grow my operation by procuring a larger stone mill, greater storage capacity for grain, grain cleaning equipment and other value-added equipment that will be able to use grain and flour. It would be very helpful to speak further about potential grant funding and resources that can support Roaring Fork Mill and the network of farmers that I support.

I look forward to further communication,
Jacob Trumbull

I spoke with Libby Christensen and CSU Extension about your programs I have built a replicable and scalable urban farm model that grosses $100k/yr with one owner-operator. The model combines indoor and greenhouse growing, has very low capex and is ideal for the climates In The Six state region. I’m already at risk of making this email too long so, in short, would love to chat with someone on the scaling food entrepreneurs team and explore possibilities. Thanks so much. Tim.

February 12, 2024

TMK owns and operates a cattle ranch in Klamath County and have worked tirelessly to create a local beef processing system in our area for local ranchers. TMK hosts a black angus bull sale every March, call Basin Bullfest, we offer premium market rates to those ranchers who purchase our bulls and sell their calves back to us. TMK is looking to create the full circle processing of these cattle to then harvest them at Musami Meats then find local markets for the beef through grocery stores and restaurants; hence, creating a true local beef market. TMK is willing to manage the "full circle" process of purchasing cattle locally and finding the path to harvest. However, we are need of collaboration efforts to develop these local markets.
