Sustainability Grants to Small Farms
The FruitGuys founded The FruitGuys Community Fund in 2012 because we believe small, independent, American farms are the key to a healthy food system. Each spring, the nonprofit awards small grants (up to $5,000 each) to small farms and agricultural nonprofits for sustainability projects that have a large positive impact on the environment, local food systems, and farm diversity. Since 2012, we've awarded 70 grants totaling more than a quarter of a million dollars to small-scale farmers. Meet our 2019 grantees!
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. Our goal is to back small farms in their efforts for greater environmental and economic health, community engagement, and advocacy that supports sustainable agriculture.
