We believe that providing small, manageable grants can have big impacts for farms. Small independent American farms are catalysts for environmental and economic self-sufficiency, sustainability, and food access. Independent farmers can lead their communities as models of self-reliance and land stewardship. It is our vision that “from a small seed, the world can be sustained.” This underlies our core belief in funding projects that make an impact beyond the farm, which is valuable not just for the farmer but for the world at large. Our goal is to back small farms in their efforts for greater environmental and economic health, community engagement, and advocacy that supports sustainable agriculture.
