Most communities have small business support networks, from small business development centers to community banks. They provide business support in general terms. Most want to support the farming industry but don’t understand the nuances of agriculture as it relates to business development. In this round table, we want to hear how you build financial literacy support for farmers through partnerships with partners in your community.
