The Michigan Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Association, Inc., (MACMA) is Michigan Farm Bureau's commodity marketing affiliate. MACMA provides marketing, bargaining, and various other group marketing and related services for its farmer members.
As a voluntary membership organization operating under federal and state cooperative laws, MACMA represents approximately 1,000 farmer members who belong to MACMA to work together to improve their farms' profitability. MACMA's major objective is obtaining full market values and improved returns for members' commodities.
MACMA is divided into two divisions-the Apple Division and Asparagus Division, each which serve the unique commodity needs of their members.
Through the efforts of MACMA, the Michigan
Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, and Michigan State University,
the GAP Assistance Manual was developed to aid growers in establishing an
on-farm GAP program.
