Biographical/Historical note

The North Carolina State University N.C. MarketReady program is part of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) and North Carolina Cooperative Extension. Dr. Blake Brown started the N.C. MarketReady program (formerly known as the Program for Value-Added & Alternative Agriculture) in 2006 to assist the transition of tobacco-farm families to other profitable enterprises. Since then the N.C. MarketReady program has relocated to the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis, North Carolina. The program officially changed its name to N.C. MarketReady in October 2009.

Their aim is to build partnerships and educational resources to help North Carolina agriculture be more profitable. To do this they develop and deliver educational programs and information resources intended to help farmers be successful. They have five key focus areas which include, Agriculture Enterprise Development, Business Skills Education, Fresh Produce Safety, Horticulture Skills Education and Strengthening Markets. They are located on the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis, North Carolina.
