Farm first, then you add+ value added products+Direct marketing+Agritourism
Direct marketing in any form can provide a diversified income stream; yet its not for all agriculture producers as it doesn’t fit their business model nor should it be a one size fits all method. Do what works for your situation.
2012 Value Added Agriculture Product Manufacturing Grant is OPEN!
Hawaii companies; Would your product benefit from dehydration? juicing? pulverizing? concentrating? purée?
How about making a tea from your product? a nutraceutical? a fruit leather? a cosmetic? dye?
Can you bottle it? add seasonings to make a new product?
GREAT opportunity for Hawaii agricultural value-added producers!
