The Montana Food and Agricultural Development Center (FADC) Network logo.

The Montana Food and Agricultural Development Center (FADC) Network helps Montanans innovate and grow businesses that produce and commercialize food, agricultural and renewable energy products and processes, creating wealth and jobs in our communities and on our farms and ranches. The centers - located throughout Montana - operate as a statewide network serving community-based businesses.

The centers support economic development by ensuring that more of the state's food, agricultural and energy dollars circulate in Montana. The network provides training, coaching and technical assistance, including:

  • Product development, testing and analysis
  • Regulatory compliance training
  • Food processing
  • Business planning and development
  • Market research
  • Business networking
  • Access to financing
  • Cooperative development
  • Education on industry dynamics and technologies

Abundant Montana is a connection to the land, to our neighbors, and to those committed to using locally-grown food in their businesses. How our food is produced and the distance it travels determines the prosperity of our communities and the health of our landscapes.
