WALKER, Mich., May 18, 2023 — The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development announced today two grant awards through its Food and Agriculture Investment Program. One of the recipients is Long Road Distillers, which will receive $65,000 to purchase larger equipment to increase its production and create five new jobs. After the announcement, state Rep. Carol Glanville (D-Walker), whose district includes Long Road, issued the following statement:

“This is a well-deserved investment in a local business that has a proven record of quality. Long Road’s success is due in no small part to its commitment to using Michigan agricultural products. It’s always great to see a local small business succeed, and thanks to this investment, we can look forward to many more years of quality, locally sourced products.”
