Tech at the Institute

Technology for rural America has been a core initiative of the Institute since it’s inception. More recently, we’ve been leveraging the amazing assets of the Internet to provide more targeted information for various segments of the North American food production, processing and distribution system.  We tend to focus most on the production aspect of our food, but we also want to help other segments of the food chain and provide information about some of the changes and challenges occurring throughout the food system.

We hope that you’ll find our initiatives helpful and will assist in our work by providing your financial support toward our initiatives. Your financial support is needed and appreciated!
