Apply Now for SARE’s Farmer Rancher Grants

The Farmer Rancher Grant is one of the best programs out there that help farmers try out a new idea, research a question, or start a new project.  It’s now accepting proposals, and the deadline is November 29th.

This grant is offered by SARE, the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program under USDA. The program is looking for research, education and demonstration projects around sustainable agriculture.  You can find more information here.

Another great resource offered by SARE is its database.  Every research, education and demonstration project in the past has posted its outcomes.  Do you have a specific question, such as what the production value of hybrid hazelnuts have been in Wisconsin? SARE has funded a project on it you can read the results!
