Connecting Local Farms to Institutional Markets: Working Landscapes Produce Center Expansion

Working Landscapes
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:

This grant will support renovation and processing improvements to Working Landscapes’ produce processing facility in Warren County. Working Landscapes is reconfiguring the facility’s floor plan to add a triple-wash production line and improve process flow, thereby boosting operational efficiency. Adding the capacity to triple-wash produce will also allow Working Landscapes to increase both the number of products it sells and the markets in which it can sell them. The expansion is expected to create seven new full-time jobs and increase sales of produce to $440,000/year. It will also allow Working Landscapes to increase its purchase of produce from local farmers. Golden LEAF funding will be used for facility renovations.
