Home Production and Preservation

canningFood Preservation - North Dakota State University Extension

A clearinghouse of information that provides resources on food preservation including:

National Center for Home Food Preservation - The University of Georgia
This website contains lots of excellent resources for preserving many types of food. 

Preserving and Preparing - University of Minnesota Extension
This website is a veritable hub of information on food preservation.

Demand for local food in rural communities is growing. Sustainable local food systems need to have strong community support to build and maintain the infrastructure needed to bring food from farm to fork. This website provides resources to support rural communities just beginning to build their community food systems as well as those whose local food systems are already strong. Resources are intended for farmers and producers, community organizations, and Extension Educators but may interest anyone in community and local foods. While this website was a partnership between Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota, most resources are applicable for any rural community.
