Getting Started

Montana Harvest of the Month is in its third year and is ever expanding. This year pre-schools and healthcare institutions will be joining the program, and we will be piloting in grocery stores as well. 

As a Montana producer, there is a lot to be gained by tapping into the new wholesale markets presented by Harvest of the Month sites.  This page provides a general guide to the program, as well as strategies for making institutional sales work for you!
