As we saw with recent changes to rules governing the craft beer industry, local co-ops, farmers markets and Sunday alcohol sales, a few smart tweaks in state legislation here and there can unlock rich new opportunities for our food and farm sector across the state.
With that in mind, our friends at the West Virginia Farmers Market Association are doing some research ahead of the 2017 session of the West Virginia State Legislature, to gather input from agricultural and related businesses regarding the state’s regulatory environment. This online survey is now open, and will be accepting responses for the next few weeks.
If you have ideas about potential regulatory changes that could help West Virginia’s food and farm sector, please take the survey now and add your input.
“Our legislators have expressed an interest in improving West Virginia’s regulatory and business climate, and we think that it would be worthwhile to share the views of our membership on this important topic,” says West Virginia Farmers Market Association’s Executive Director, Parween Mascari.
