Appropriate Technology Transfer for Rural Areas (ATTRA)

Since 1987, this federally funded clearinghouse has been helping farmers and other ag professionals find the sustainable farming and marketing information they need. In those 10 years, the ATTRA staff has answered more than 100,000 queries.

Now, some of the program's more popular resources are online at ATTRA's new website, including:

  • Alternative Beef Marketing
  • Dairy Products On-Farm
  • Farmscaping to Enhance Biological Control
  • Herb Production & Marketing
  • Marketing Organic Livestock Products
  • Mushroom Cultivation & Marketing
  • Organic Blueberry Production
  • Organic Certification
  • Organic Cranberry Production
  • Organic Culture of Bramble Fruit
  • Overview of Organic Fruit Production
  • Sustainable Beef Production

Normally, we would link you directly to these publications from this page. But each year ATTRA faces a struggle to secure funding, so they need to carefully track who uses their site. To help make sure they receive the resources they deserve, we discourage you from bookmarking individual publications at the site. Instead, access them each time through the site's On-Line Publications List, which features a brief form to mark your visit.

Typically the publications are excellent and extensive primers on the subject -- a great place to start doing your homework before tackling a new practice or enterprise. They are thoroughly referenced and include listings of print and internet resources to go to for more information, and sometimes even researchers and practitioners to contact.

If you don't see what you're looking for at the site, don't overlook their hard-copy publications list, many of which will be added to the site as it grows.

If you still don't find what you're looking for, you can call ATTRA's toll-free hotline at: (800) 346-9140. Or you can email your question to: askattra@ncatark.uark.edu. Calling has its advantages, because ATTRA's specialists can help clarify your questions on the spot.

The site also includes: Definitely worth bookmarking for future reference.
