MIFFS’ work supports entrepreneurial farm business development and resilient food systems by serving as the bridge between the resources of USDA service providers, knowledge of subject matter experts, and wisdom from diverse farming communities throughout Michigan.


MIFFS is a farmer-led organization that strives to listen first and maintain the knowledge and lessons learned from the diverse individuals and communities with which we’ve worked. MIFFS provides various services to support the success and growth of historically underserved farmers in Michigan by facilitating peer to peer, regionally based, farmer networks. MIFFS staff and affiliates work on the ground in partnership  with farmers and their local communities to identify and address barriers for success in farm development.
