Sustainable Farm & Food Initiative

The Sustainable Farm and Food Initiative has received approval for their Dairy Goat Pilot Project. This proof-of-concept project will include the development of an electronic tool (or questionnaire) that will consist of questions compiled from three existing sustainability tools.  This sustainability tool will be tested by 8-12 dairy goat producers and subsequently evaluated by the project team for ease of use, alignment with international sustainability tools, and overall usefulness to the dairy goat supply chain.
