New England Farmer Microgrants Program

The New England Farmer Microgrants Program supports farmers in New England working to access land, improve land security, expand production, or plan for succession.

The program funds projects in two primary categories: professional services and infrastructure costs related to keeping or bringing agricultural land in production.

For this program, we define “farmer” as an individual, group, or organization who are intentionally cultivating annual or perennial crops or animals for harvest. We understand farming practices vary widely across New England and across communities. This grant does not support growing or raising products primarily for personal use but is intended to allow production for community use.

Applications for our 2021 round are now closed. Check back in the winter for updates on our 2022 applications.
