Resilience for your farm and community.
Delta Enterprise Network or DEN is an group of farmers, entrepreneurs and others creating new business ventures, cooperatives and policy change. DEN members assist each other in overcoming barriers to sustainable agroecosystems. Our indicators of success are ecologically sound locally-owned, value-added (LOVA) enterprises especially including new farms. In existence for 20 years, we have recently expanded our work beyond the Delta states to the adjacent Ozarks and with consultancies in many African and former Soviet Union countries.
Uniting teams for resilient enterprises and ecosystems.
Join us in DEN.
If you have an idea for an agriculture or natural resource business or cooperative, or just want to start farming, we can help. We are a network of folks who are eager to help create sustainable rural development. We believe that no one state or one person has all the answers, so we’ll introduce you to several folks and help you find the right mentor or facilitator. If we all band together we can overcome the pessimism and polarization which plagues rural areas. We have so many opportunities in environmentally-sound diversification in agriculture. Let’s turn that potential into reality.
