Flip: Markets Are Key To Farmland Conservation
Here’s a great example of how to deploy Internet technology and interactivity to conserving farmland. The Michigan Land Use Institute just posted the latest version of our Taste The Local Difference Web site, which links buyers of local farm products to sellers. Here’s a new facet of the site that enables wholesale suppliers and buyers to connect very quickly on the Web, an online wholesale market as it were. Just great work by the Institute’s Entrepreneurial Agriculture Project and our Web producer, Doug Rose. Nice job guys.
