Program Description
Major program emphasis has been on the development of "alternative income opportunities" for current and potential producers. The Maryland Small Farm Cooperative has also been established, and was divided into four commodity groups (Livestock, Greenhouse and Ornamentals, Fruits/Vegetables, and Field Crops).

The Income Opportunities for Rural Areas program has been established to enhance farming opportunities, and consists of research and demonstration projects at the Wye Research and Education Center, and on cooperators' farms. Assistance provided to our small farm community include the following: development and enhancement of farm management and marketing skills, financial record keeping, and granting opportunities.
