The National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) Foundation is offering a new business competition for women making food and beverage products in Oregon and Washington.

In partnership with the Washington State Department of Agriculture and Oregon Department of Agriculture, the NASDA Foundation is hosting the first Women’s Farm to Food Business Competition. The competition will award a total of $40,000 to help women launch, grow or scale their businesses.

The competition is open to women who are farmers, fishers or ranchers and are using their agricultural goods to create food and beverage products. The competition is also open to entrepreneurial women who source agricultural goods from Oregon and Washington producers and use those ingredients to create food and beverage products.
