Van der Pol Family Featured on USDA Website

Two generations of the Van der Pol family operate Pastures a Plenty, a value-added pork business in Kerkhoven MN. From 2010-12, CDS assisted the Van der Pols with business planning to expand their operation; we also assisted them in obtaining funding to implement their business plan through USDA's Value-Added Producer Grant program.  We're proud that their story is being featured this week on USDA's national website:  http://blogs.usda.gov/2012/12/26/value-added-grants-help-minnesota-pork-farm-meet-growing-demand/
