This series discusses ways that small- and medium-size farms can enter the wholesale market with local produce. In Part 1, I introduced the Food Hub, which I now explain further.

Barriers to entry are high so those who can figure out solutions will be well-positioned. Part 1 in a series to discuss tools to help small farms access the major wholesale system.
