    Agri-business

    This is a very interesting story on small-town agri-business. If anyone knows of similar stories, pass them along.

    I recently attended a rural development conference. Co-ops and agribusiness where a small part. presentations from the conference are available on line.

    Another interesting/new progam business venture here is the wine and cider businesses. Laws have recently been changed to allow for growers to brew and sell on site.

    Hope these are the types of things you are interested in.

    The Sonoran Institute has an excellent publication on diversification of ranch operations entitled New Frontiers of Ranching. It is not yet on-line, copies can be ordered from the Institute: 520-290-0828. I would also check with the American Farmland Trust.
