Our volunteer review committee has been hard at work. This year, we’ve selected 26 finalists from over 300 applications. 

This portfolio of finalists is based on a number of different criteria, including: 

  • Ownership diversity
  • Years in operation 
  • Farm size and setting
  • Community impact 
  • Type of farming 
  • Project budget and focus areas 

Consider Donating to Help Fund More Farm Finalists in 2024 

Our review committee will have to make some tough calls this year. All of the finalists have worthy projects but we only have enough funding to cover a select few. Luckily, one of our generous donors has pledged to match up to $8,000 in donations. That means this is a great time to make a tax-deductible donation to the Community Fund. If you give $100, our donor will match it, doubling your impact to $200!

The full amount of your  donation will go toward funding more sustainability projects for small farms.

Speaking of small farms, we’re pleased to announce that the following farms and agricultural nonprofits have been asked to complete the finalist application process in hopes of becoming 2024 grantees.

Thank you to all the worthy farm applicants who submitted applications this year. We know your time is precious, and we thank you for your efforts. Also, a huge thank you to the members of our grant review committee.
