Specialty Crop Growers should be aware of the December 11, 2020 deadline for Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 (CFAP 2) payments. This affects pecan, grape, herb, vegetable, fruit, spice, nursery, greenhouse, cut flower, honey and aquaculture growers. The USDA provided an additional $14 billion for agricultural producers facing market disruptions and associated costs due to Covid 19. Growers should be sure to apply for these benefits by the deadline and contact their local FSA office for assistance.

And over the weekend on Small Business Saturday, we were reminded of how important it is to shop small and shop local during this season.
