5 Supply chains for emerging products Heartland Nuts ‘N More Cooperatively marketing improved varieties Overview Heartland Nuts ‘N More is a 35-member formally incorporated cooperative headquartered in Valparaiso, Nebraska. The co-op produces, processes and markets pecans and black walnuts from growers in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri. Relying on over thirty years of research and experimentation, Heartland’s focus has been on improving nut varieties and finding high-quality cultivars; their mission statement is “To produce and harvest the best-tasting, premium-quality orchard-grown tree nuts, including black walnuts and Northern pecans.” History While Heartland Nuts ‘N More was founded in 2003, its story starts over two and a half decades prior. In the 1970s, researchers in the University of Nebraska—Lincoln forestry department had an interest in developing alternative ……

6 Climate change and food supply chains Proposals for future work: Estimating future demands on agricultural freight transport in the Upper Midwest due to climate change Climate change and risk in perennial farming systems: Resiliency planning for perennial fruit production in the Upper Midwest

7 Climate change and food supply chains Participatory research needs for climate / food systems How do we optimize resilience? Focus on food, not agriculture – proteins, fruits and vegetables. Production bio-region as the “whole under management” – what is sustainable? Production bio-regions build economic capacity by selling metro markets high-value products – asset analysis / “low hanging fruit” Investigate ways to equitably share risks across food supply chains, create supply webs ID the logistical partners and communities impacted and involve them from the outset Anticipate change and use it to our advantage

8 Food sovereignty and culinary identity

9 Power dynamic  City dwellers are the market.  Rural landscapes and communities produce food.  Is the relationship equitable?
