Elgin Local Food Center logo

In 2015, the City of Elgin received a grant from the USDA to pilot local food processing as a viable driver of our local food economy.  We called the pilot the ELF: Elgin Local Food Center.  The $95,000 grant, completed in 2017, paid for technical assistance to help farmers test new products, from sauerkraut to pickled zucchini. We tested 10 products, running a cost analysis on each.  We also met many food entrepreneurs interested in starting their new food business in Elgin!  The ELF is indeed a viable way to create quality jobs in Elgin and provide new markets for farmers in central Texas.
