ABSTRACT
The article reports on federal grants to farm co-ops in Georgia. A growing interest in farm co-ops got a boost late last fall from a $266,000 federal grant to the Georgia Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development. The grant will give Georgia its first statewide farm co-op development center. The new Georgia Cooperative Development Center will be one of 20 such centers in the United States. The CAED, part of the University of Georgia College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, secured the grant from the Rural Development program.
