Building Capacity in South Dakota’s Local Food Systems: A Rural Business Opportunity Grant Project Back »

This Rural Business Opportunity Grant (RBOG), funded by USDA Rural Development, brought together local food producers with a team of professional resource providers to form regional and statewide collaborations that will ultimately increase sales of locally grown food products. Providing South Dakota-specific education for producers, creating new avenues for marketing local foods, and allowing for the expansion of businesses that will add new jobs has given the local foods system in the state a boost. Producers are using new resources, and resource providers are working together in ways that benefit the entire initiative.
