These grants are for farmers/ranchers to explore innovative sustainable agriculture solutions to production, marketing, labor, and other problems. Sustainable agriculture practices are tested through on-farm research, education, or demonstration projects and results are shared with other farmers/ranchers. The Farmer Rancher Grant call is released in August and proposals are due in December. Approximately $720,000 is available for this program. Grant recipients have 23 months to complete their projects.
