Dairy farm families across America are facing tremendous challenges due to many factors including a weak dairy economy, disruptions from severe weather, and an aging farming population. American Farmland Trust is joining Chobani to support dairy farmers in planning for the future.

Grants of $500 to $5,000 were available to help dairy farm families in New York access information and professional services to plan for farm transitions. These funds may be used for farm transfer and succession planning, farm business planning, permanently protecting land, or adopting regenerative practices.
