Food Processing Incubator Coming to Muskegon County

Muskegon, Mich. – Time to spill the beans. To support the growth of the food processing sector, the Community Foundation for Muskegon County and the West Michigan Shoreline Food Processing Initiative are moving forward to create a food processing incubator and training development center.

In December 2019, the FARM facility (Food, Agriculture, Research, and Manufacturing) received support from the Muskegon Community College Board of Trustees and leadership, along with Muskegon Charter Township, to construct the 12,000-square-foot facility at the corner of Stebbins and Quarterline Roads, located on the northeast corner of campus. The FARM will provide students pursuing the joint food service certificate from MCC and Michigan State University with the opportunity to witness innovation at the state-of-the-art pilot food processing training facility.
