Trump Administration Invests $490,000 in Value-Added Producer Grants in Rural Oklahoma

Tue, 13 Oct 2020 09:33:33 CDT

Trump Administration Invests $490,000 in Value-Added Producer Grants in Rural Oklahoma The Trump Administration today announced that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is investing $490,000 in two agriculture producers in rural Oklahoma.

“We recognize that our agriculture producers work both day and night to produce their products. This investment supports them in their efforts to generate new products and to expand the marketing of these products. We are happy to support these agriculture producers,” said Dr. Lee Denney USDA Rural Development Oklahoma State Director. “Under the leadership of President Trump and Agriculture Secretary Perdue, USDA has been working tirelessly to be a strong partner to rural Oklahoma in building stronger and healthier communities, because we know when rural America thrives, all of America thrives.”

The agriculture producers receiving funding through the Value-Added Producer Grants program in rural Oklahoma include:

• Miller Pecan Company LLC, in Afton, has received a grant in the amount of $240,000 to expand their market of native pecans. Miller Pecan is one of the only producers in the U.S. that handles their pecans from planting through marketing. This expansion will assist them in entering a new market of local native pecans and will increase their brand awareness.
• Summerside Vineyards & Winery Inc., in Tuttle, has received a grant in the amount of $250,000 to expand their market. Summerside, a female-owned vineyard and winery, will expand their market of wholesale distributors and restaurants to include grocery stores and convenience stores, aligning with recent changes to Oklahoma liquor laws.

USDA Rural Development provides loans and grants to help expand economic opportunities and create jobs in rural areas. This assistance supports infrastructure improvements; business development; housing; community facilities such as schools, public safety and health care; and high-speed internet access in rural areas.
