Food Systems

Serving WA Farm and Food Systems Stakeholders

The Washington State University Food Systems Program integrates multidisciplinary expertise across academic, research, and extension, offering specialized resources for farmers and food systems contributors. We partner with communities throughout the state to foster viable farm businesses, optimize sustainable natural resource stewardship, and promote scaled processing and distribution, always in the pursuit of access to healthy food for all.

We grew from the roots of the Small Farms Program, built on many years of dedicated support for the nearly 90% of farms in Washington that are considered small. We continue to support this crucial demographic of farmers while taking a holistic approach to building sustainable and equitable regional food systems.
