MUSKEGON — An 8,000-square-foot food processing business incubator in Muskegon is now open and accepting new tenants. Last Friday, Greater Muskegon Economic Development and the West Michigan Food Processing Association announced that the new Food, Agriculture, Research Manufacturing (FARM) Center is officially open on the campus of Muskegon Community College.

The facility includes flexible manufacturing space for commercial grade fruit and vegetable processing, targeting stage-two food processing businesses that have outgrown residential kitchens but do not yet have the resources to operate their own production plants.

While tenants are responsible to stock the space with necessary equipment, FARM features amenities such as refrigeration, freezers, energy efficient waste and water handling, and loading docks.
