The PROFIT series provides important information about the latest on food safety regulations and GAP certification, crop insurance and risk management tools, and participants receive hands on experience in “one-page financial,” “one-page risk assessment” and “one-page business plan” tools. The series also provides information on how operations can participate in food hubs, farm-to-school, ag cooperatives and other new market ventures linking small, beginning, mid-size and remote producers into new market opportunities.

With support from the USDA Risk Management Agency, the University of Arkansas School of Law Indigenous Food and Agriculture Initiative has joined with the Farm Credit Council, the Intertribal Agriculture Council and Morse Marketing to offer an important set of workshops in Oklahoma and the Arizona/New Mexico region, and a set of workshops for Pacific Northwest Tribes during 2016.
