“The online market helped my business by providing opportunities to reach customers and sell more products. The online market gave us the assurance that we could hold the market no matter how bad things got. It allowed us as businesses and farmers to make plans with better assurance that it would work out.” ~ Carol Rast, Prairie Sun Farms

“Our parents and students both loved the SPROUT Kits you provided. The kids have been coming to school all week to give reports on their bean salsa and planting activities! What a great way for families to interact with our local food system.”
