Donna Williams, Field Goods founder, has been working with HVADC since starting the company. Williams says that HVADC is an enormous resource and advocate for the farming community, both large and small farms, as well as for companies like Field Goods.
Through the years, HVADC has supported Field Goods on grant writing projects, offering statements of support, and providing general business counseling. Field Goods has received grants from Greene County Economic Development, the New York State Capital Region Economic Development Council competition, and the USDA for its work to support agriculture and create jobs in an economically disadvantaged area.
Field Goods’ involvement with HVADC is a two-way street. Earlier this year Williams spoke to the HVADC Farm and Food Business Accelerator (FFBA) Peer group, many of which she purchases from, to discuss market opportunities, and spoke in conjunction with HVADC at this year’s National Farm Viability Conference.
