Peoria-Area Small Farm Incubator Possible

In response to overwhelming demand for locally grown produce, the Peoria County Board is conducting a feasibility study to determine the market viability for a small farm incubator and aggregation facility at the former Hanna City work camp (read more about the Hanna City project here).

Currently, they are seeking input from growers. Achieving a good response rate is critical to the success of any survey process. If you’re a grower in the area and can take a few moments to fill out a survey online at http://surveymonkey.com/s/seeds2success it could help move the project forward. If you’re not a grower in the area but know growers, please pass this message on to them. Contact Kathie Brown, brownlk@illinois.edu or phone 309-255-9189, if you have any questions about the project.
