USDA Ag Marketing Service  (AMS) - Our programs create marketing opportunities for U.S. producers of #food, #fiber & specialty crops. #agriculture #organic #rancher #farmer

This week, Undersecretary Greg Ibach announced an investment of more than $102 million to improve opportunities for farmers, ranchers and other growers across the country through our grant programs. Find out more about our grantees: http://goo.gl/c8iwtJ .

The Undersecretary is seen here at the Union Station Market in Denver, CO. Just one of the hundreds of farmers markets weโ€™ve helped through our grants. These grants support local farmers, ranchers and food entrepreneurs and increase access to fresh, locally, and affordable produce.
