Point Mackenzie Correctional Farm’s Produce Power

During the 2016 season, Point Mackenzie Correctional Farm has harvested almost 3 million pounds worth of produce ranging from beef (over 3,000lbs) and pork (over 15,000lbs) to broccoli (over 34,000lbs), carrots (over 145,000lbs) and potatoes (almost 2 million pounds).

This produce was distributed throughout the state to many correctional institutions for inmate consumption, as well as donated to local charitable organizations including 80,950 pounds to the Food Bank of Alaska alone.

Sgt. Rahm is pictured displaying one of the huge carrots harvested this year.

Thank you to all of the wonderful staff and inmates that work hard to continue giving back to the citizens of Alaska.

We appreciate you!
