Reno County-south Hutchinson food policy council
Kansas Rural Center
Since 1979, the Kansas Rural Center has worked to advance an ecologically sound,
diversified food and farming system. KRC helps farmers and ranchers
implement alternative practices, enhance their natural resources,
improve their livelihoods and support their rural communities. We also
help farmers and citizens join together in growing opportunities for
local and regional food.
The Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) Cost Share Program is designed to assist fruit and vegetable growers with the cost of a GAP audit. The Kansas Department of Agriculture (KDA) will pay 50 percent, with a maximum reimbursement of $1,000, of the cost to have a third party audit a farm's food safety program for first time users.
Reno County residents are challenged daily to make sound effective decisions regarding their personal health, finances, family life, home and commercial garden, and agriculture business.
From the Land of Kansas
The From the Land of KansasTM trademark program's goal is to help businesses that grow, produce, process or manufacture products in Kansas. In addition, the program works with and supports restaurants using Kansas products and retailers selling Kansas products and ingredients.
This trademark program helps members promote their Kansas products
and provides members with a variety of business development tips and
opportunities including marketing assistance. In addition, the state
trademark provides a consistent way to identify Kansas agriculture-based products.
