On March 7, 2019, the Land Stewardship Project’s Farm Viability Steering Committee held an “Innovative Market Forum” in Saint Paul, Minn. During the forum, LSP brought together a panel consisting of four farmer-buyer pairs. These farmer-buyer pairs showcased innovative marketing partnerships they have developed in recent years and highlighted their successes and challenges.
