We’re tackling our biggest endeavor yet: a food hub with a commissary kitchen and incubator program to support entrepreneurs in starting or expanding a small food business and a farm-to-restaurant wholesale operation. The food hub is a pilot funded by a grant from the USDA, however the grant will not fund the purchase of equipment. Donations made to support the food hub will help us buy equipment for Yavapai County’s only commissary kitchen.
In partnership with the City of Prescott, PFM has implemented a small-scale community composting program, which processes food scraps collected from the market and from several local restaurants to keep them out of the landfill. Then with the help of dedicated staff and volunteers, and a lot of hard work and meticulous care, it’s turn into free compost to be used in gardens and on farms throughout the Prescott area.
PFM, in collaboration with the Prescott Public Library and Prescott Gardener, maintain the Prescott Seed Library. Patrons can select from 25 varieties of fruit, vegetable, herb and flower seeds and “check out” seed packets with their library card! Our goal is to make seeds accessible to everyone and support them in their gardening and growing efforts.
Ensuring that your friends, family, and neighbors who need it most are getting fresh produce is a top priority. This means purchasing fresh produce from local farmers and delivering it to food banks, school feeding sites, and other distribution sites already established in the community, as well as working directly with families and individuals in need.
It’s hard for farmers to take time away from their land to better their business. PFM provides opportunities for farmers, ranchers and small food vendors to attend trainings, conferences and workshops to improve their businesses. Our goal is that through our Farmer Development program, local growers will expand production and distribution, contributing to a thriving local foods community.
We want every single market day to be a zero waste event! After each market our dedicated staff and volunteers dig through the market trash and divert compostable and recyclable items from the landfill. We purchase compostable to-go containers in bulk so our vendors can buy them from us at the same or lower cost they’re currently paying for plastic and styrofoam containers.
