Barn2Door and the Intertribal Agriculture Council (IAC) American Indian Foods (AIF) program are pleased to announce a partnership, to support American Indian producers eager to grow their direct-to-market businesses.
IAC aims to promote the conservation, development and use of agricultural resources for the betterment of Tribal members. Today, more than 80,000 Native American farmers could benefit from IAC resources to help transition from commodity production to local agriculture systems that promote regenerative practices and directly connect their communities with food producers.
Barn2Door is privileged and eager to support the IAC mission. Barn2Door CEO, Janelle Maiocco, shared, “It’s an honor to partner with the IAC and support their work with Native American food producers across the country. We’re excited to help those Farmers interested in pursuing direct-to-market businesses, with the tools and support to better serve their local communities and keep 100 percent profit from their sales.”
Zach Ducheneaux, Executive Director of IAC, echoed Maiocco’s comments, “Critical to truly equitable economic systems, is decreasing the number of handlers between the producers and the consumer, and adding value to the economy of one at the best value to the other. This relationship with Barn2Door is a great step in that direction for Indian Country producers, enabling them to directly serve their consumers.”
By providing the tools and support for farms to handle direct sales and marketing, Barn2Door aims to help improve market access for IAC members and simplify the consumer experience. In furtherance of the partnership, IAC members will receive $100 off a one-time setup fee upon signing up for annual Barn2Door subscription - additionally, one month of their subscription will be donated to the IAC in furtherance of their education and policy initiatives.
