Lowell Farmers’ Market Bolsters Family Farm Success

“Participating in the Lowell Farmers’ Market helps me close financial gaps at the end of the month. It also gives our farm exposure to the community, socially and economically.”

Bob R’s family operated a dairy farm in Lowell for generations. He wanted to return to his roots, but in a challenging economy, and practical farm education usually being an informally passed-on body of knowledge, Bob expected to struggle to start up a farm. Regardless of how critical farming is to our region, without small business support, farming education, and a place to access customers, beginning a farm is unrealistic. For Bob and his family, farming became a reality, and a realistic source of income and happiness.
