Genesee County: Agricultural Development Plan CASE STUDIES: AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS The ACDS study team feels that a brief overview of selected public and private sector development initiatives proves as an instructive introduction to agricultural development. The study team interviewed and evaluated the best practices employed by selected agricultural viability projects throughout the United States. Summaries of these programs are provided below. LOUDOUN COUNTY, VIRGINIA Loudoun County has had an agricultural development program for 10 years. The Agricultural Development Program has operated under the guiding principles of several strategic plans. Policy work, agritourism programs, advice to farmers, publications and the development of a farmers market system are key program areas of the Agricultural Development Program. Production of marketing guides, listings of specialty producers, spring and fall farm tours and a website are the primary tools of the program and have proven very successful. Recent full color glossy publications include Spring Farm Tour and Product Guide 2000, Loudoun Valleys Color Farm Tour and The Loudoun Wine Trail. Their two newest programs are the farmland viability program and the Purchase of Development Rights Program. The Agriculture Development Program conducts 5 major events throughout the year. These events target non-agricultural citizens in an effort to educate and increase their awareness of the agricultural industry. ONEIDA COUNTY, NEW YORK Oneida County has had an Agricultural Development Program for two years. However, the current Agricultural Development Program Officer has been in place just several months. The Agricultural Development Program is focusing on farm propagation, food processing and manufacturing for enhancing the agricultural industry. The Agricultural Development Officer is looking at market opportunities, like the niche ethnic markets from New York City to Detroit, for rekindling meat packing in the state. The Agricultural Development Program has worked out a program that provides local agricultural products to the state prison system. The institutional markets provide a great market outlet, however, the downside is that they shop for price. MASSACHUSETTS FARM VIABILITY ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM The Massachusetts Farm Viability Enhancement Program has been in place 5 years. This program is a competitive process and to date, there are 105 farms with business plans, 10,000 acres under protective covenants, and an average projected increase in income of $19,000 per farm. In 2000, an additional 34 farm operations will be participating in the program. Farm viability plans are developed by teams of agricultural, economic and environmental consultants who make recommendations on ways of increasing farm income through such techniques as improved management practices, diversification, direct marketing, value-added products and agritourism. Funding is made available to the farmer to implement the plan in exchange for an agricultural use covenant on the property.

Genesee County: Agricultural Development Plan THE AMERICAN WHITE WHEAT PRODUCERS ASSOCIATION American White Wheat Producers Association (AWWPA) is a producer-owned marketing cooperative formed in 1988 in Atchison, Kansas. Their mission is to develop white wheat markets for their producers. Currently, there are 300 farmers in this closed cooperative. AWWPA's primary goal is to add value, getting their farmer-members product further up the marketing chain. Recognizing the importance of the customer, AWWPA has spent the last ten years perfecting an identity preserved, targeted delivery, process for value-added white wheat products. THE TILLAMOOK COUNTY CREAMERY ASSOCIATION The Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA) is an open member cooperative in only two counties - Tillamook and Clatsop, Oregon. The TCCA has a raw milk supply of 175,000 gallons/day from 150 members with herds averaging 135 cows. These grazing dairies lead the nation in milk quality. The TCCA is a national marketer of naturally aged cheddar and a variety of other cheeses, butter, and an extensive line of premium ice cream, sour cream and yogurt. Marketing tools include full colored recipes and gift catalogs. Employees include 45 professional and over 350 non-professional employees that staff their manufacturing plant. The plant processes 1.5 million pounds of fresh milk daily, seven days per week. One million visitors tour the manufacturing plant each year and make direct purchases, which adds to the premiums received by the members. TCCA represents about one-third of all milk produced in the state of Oregon. One hundred percent of all the milk produced goes to the creamery in Tillamook County. Members, however, do deliver skim milk to other coops. The TCCA had $199 million in total sales and handled 635 million pounds of milk in 1999. Members receive anywhere from $1.00 to $2.00 more for their milk above the Federal marketing order. VIRGINIA’S SHIPPING POINT FARMERS MARKET SYSTEM In 1985 the Virginia Department of Agriculture conducted the Virginia Wholesale Farmers’ Market Feasibility Study. The study concluded that there was a need for farmers to look into supplemental crops such as varieties of fruits, vegetables, greenhouse and nursery stock. The agricultural industry needed to position itself to take advantage of the large consumer base, 60% of the U.S. population, that was within 700 miles. The purpose of the farmers’ market system was to provide growers the opportunity to grade, pack and cool products to meet retail and wholesale buyers’ specifications. IOWA STATE AGRICULTURAL SUPPORT PROGRAMS The State of Iowa has been actively supporting innovations in agriculture through the Iowa Agricultural Development Authority (IADA) and the Iowa Agricultural Finance Corporations (IAFC) since 1981. During the last two decades, Iowa has financed over $200 million in agricultural and agriculturally related improvements using a combination of capital instruments. The stated reason Iowa has engaged in such a comprehensive approach is to “facilitate private investment capital in this under-served industry.” The primary tools employed by the IADA and the IAFC are: 1.) the tecTERRA Food Capital Fund, 2.) the Value-Added Agricultural Products and Processes Financial Assistance Program, and 3.) the Aggie Bond Program.
