Local Food Marketing Services

Partnership Services

Partnerships can be sold to all parts of the food system. This is the most basic way to become involved with Abundant Montana (AMT). An organization must be a partner to gain access to AMT services. Partnership includes a listing in the Local Food Guide and a digital listing on the AMT website in the Find Food & Farms database, and one social media post on AMT’s Instagram and Facebook about the partner (expectation is the partner will share the post). Partnerships are often referred to as ways that organizations can contribute to AMT’s work in supporting the local food system generally and building consumer demand.

Annual Partner Subscription
