Feasibility Study for Mixes of Different Sales Options for Rural Local Food Collaborators

Collaborative local food distribution and business enterprise combinations were studied for agriculture producers in remote, low-populated rural communities in Nevada. The research assessed the supply of agricultural products and compared the feasibility of enterprises for local sales and value adding and distribution to Las Vegas. Consumer interests and demand for local food indicated potential demand for a commercial kitchen, café and storefront, a local buying club, Las Vegas product distribution, or a combination of all. The agriculture producers have used the results to plan collaborative distribution into differing enterprise mixes to maximize profits and efficiency, and meet regional consumer demand.
