About the event
Hello beautiful people,
On Saturday, November 5th from 10am-12:30pm, ECAHMAA will be hosting The University of Wisconsin Madison - Division of Extension and their event Hmong Farmer Focus Group. The project is part of Extension’s statewide effort to support Hmong farmers. This focus will be on the younger generation of Hmong farmers. Flowers, plants, value-added products like pickles and preserved food, and any livestock. These would be those that are selling and are the owner or helping their parents, whether they want to continue the business or not. We want to hear from them why the focus group doesn't want to farm and what type of farming or markets they want to go into. Barriers and challenges include cultural challenges.
In the future, we want to do training that focuses on young/old or both farmers who want to look into the future with alternative markets and farm practices.
We hope to see you all.
