IGM’s mission is to promote increased production and consumption of locally raised meat on Martha’s Vineyard through advocacy, education and outreach.
Building on the great success of IGI’s Poultry Program, which provides a local processing solution for chickens and has created additional agricultural income of $70,000 for island farmers, IGM is now focusing on developing an Island based USDA inspected, humane processing facility for animals with four legs.
We are currently in the process of doing a feasibility study about the creation of a four legged animal processing facility on the island. For more information about this research and our meat program, please contact Richard Andre, firstname.lastname@example.org
