ANCA’s  Local Farm Grant* provides seed or refinancing capital to improve farm viability by addressing gaps in the local food supply chain, increasing opportunity for value-added processing or securing business development services.

To foster farm viability in northern New York, ANCA is offering grants ranging between $2,500-$45,000 to assist local farmers, producers/entrepreneurs, food hubs, and cooperatives interested in expanding, diversifying, or niching their business in economically distressed counties of northern NY.

Thank you to the generous donors whose gift of $100,000 has made this grant opportunity possible. These donors have challenged the ANCA community to match their gift through the Local Farm Challenge.
