Our Mission

How can we help?

In March and April 2020 FARRMS created a short survey to determine the needs of ND farmers and communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are leaving the survey open because we still want to know how we can help.

In 2016 and 2017, ND local food leaders created an outline for the development of a coordinated local food system in North Dakota. Their work led to the formation of NDLFDA.  Read the ND Local Food Plan below.

Updated April 17, 2020, this document is a compilation of North Dakota specific resources for farmers, farmers markets and nonprofits.
