Snohomish County hopes to repurpose existing buildings at McCollum Park into a processing and distribution center and a commercial kitchen for farmers to use. County Agriculture Coordinator Linda Neunzig at McCollum Park on Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2021 in Everett, Washington.  “If you and I have blueberries and we have a big order from a big institution and we only have enough if we package and deliver them together as one order, we as smaller farmers could meet that order,” Neunzig said.
Producers can also use the center to combine forces and outsource delivery, lowering cost and reducing time away from the farm. “It opens up a market,” Neunzig said.  (Andy Bronson / The Herald)
