Dairy Business Innovation Center Info Session and Workshop

Do you have an innovative idea for your dairy farm that will benefit the community and natural resources, but don’t know where to start with funding? Are you interested in improving your food safety standards and want help accessing the technical assistance? Grant funding is available for these activities (and more) through the Northeast Dairy Business Innovation Center (NE-DBIC).

Want to learn more? Come to the Enosburg Emergency Services Building (83 Sampsonville Rd, Enosburg Falls) or join in on Zoom (see below for details) on Tuesday, December 6th from 11am to 1pm for a Dairy Business Innovation Center Info Session and Workshop. The Franklin County Natural Resources Conservation District is hosting this session in collaboration with the Northeast Dairy Business Innovation Center and Healthy Roots Collaborative.

Attendees will learn about current funding opportunities available through the NE-DBIC, including the Dairy Farm Innovation Grant and the Dairy Food Safety and Certification Grant, how to prepare a successful application, examples of past funded projects, and how funding from the NE-DBIC is currently supporting dairy farm businesses in northwest Vermont.

Examples of projects that can be funded through these NE-DBIC grants include developing and adopting green technologies, exploring new cooperative milk production models, and technical assistance for food safety training and plan development.

After the presentations, Franklin County NRCD staff will be on hand to answer questions, discuss project ideas, and assist with applications. A free pizza lunch will be provided to all attendees.

Please RSVP for in-person or virtual attendance by emailing or calling 802-528-4185. If you require any disability-related accommodations to participate in this event, please request with your RSVP.
