Supporting The People Who Feed Us

Explore how our partnership with the American Farmland Trust and CCOF is helping to address systemic challenges facing underrepresented farmers in California.
Supporting The People Who Feed Us

No farmer left behind

Underrepresented farmers face systemic barriers that make growing their businesses challenging. They’re not given equal access to things like capital, land, and resources (to name a few). This ongoing partnership aims to change that.

We’re proud to announce that to date, 12 farmers have been selected to participate in the program. They’ll receive resources, education, and additional support (including a $10,000 grant) in their efforts to scale or transition their operations.
