A major goal for this Center is to demonstrate to the people of the region that farmers do have viable options to off-farm jobs when they diversify and utilize the whole farm, including woodlots. Products this region can produce can compete with large-scale farms on the basis of quality. The heirloom market is a flower in the bud stage, just waiting to blossom. We want to use our skills and information base (developed over many decades) to bring to the forefront the importance of quality heirloom fruits and vegetables.
