Local agriculture businesses awarded state grants
A farm and a meat processing plant in Marion County were given state grants for projects to shore up the state’s food supply system.
Janzen Family Farms was given $5,000 through the Securing Local Food Systems grant program and Peabody Sausage House was given $50,000.
The grants are part of $9 million that will be given to agriculture and food-related businesses across the state. Funding came through the CARES Act and was made possible by the Strengthening People and Revitalizing Kansas Task Force.
