Program Description
The Kansas Center for Sustainable Agriculture and Alternative Crops was established by Senate Bill 534, passed by the 2000 Kansas Legislature out of concern for family farms in Kansas. KCSAAC, a center within K-State Research and Extension, works in partnership with state and federal agencies, nonprofit organizations and agricultural organizations to assist family farmers and ranchers to boost farm profitability, protect natural resources and enhance rural communities.

The Center serves as a resource center for producers and professionals searching for information to develop a more diversified, sustainable agriculture.

The Center provides and facilitates a communications network among sustainable agriculture professionals and producers for increased collaboration and multidisciplinary projects and activities directed towards research and outreach needs expressed by Kansas producer stakeholders. 2004 priority areas include grazing/livestock systems, community based food systems and organic production systems.

The Center also hosts the Kansas Foods Directory. The directory is a cooperative project with the Kansas Rural Center and the Kansas Department of Commerce-Ag Products Division. The free, searchable, web-based directory allows consumers to search by county and by food item to locate Kansas producers. The directory is located at :http://www.kansasfoods.org.
