MENDOCINO COUNTY, 1/31/23 — The Good Farm is now accepting grant applications from farms in Mendocino and Lake counties for this year’s farm grant cycle.
This year’s grant cycle includes farm grants as well as a category for fire preparation and recovery grants. The grants are made possible in large part by community support, donations, and sponsorships from small businesses for the recent 8th annual Winter Feast, a farm-to-table fundraiser in December 2022.
The Good Farm Fund is a community organization dedicated to providing direct support to small farmers in Mendocino and Lake counties, as well as increasing local food access for underserved members of our community. Since 2015, the project has granted over $250,000 to small farms and ranches for critical infrastructure projects. Good Farm Fund also supports the Market Match Program at Mendocino and Lake County farmers markets. The Good Farm Fund is a fiscally sponsored program of North Coast Opportunities, a Community Action Agency serving Lake & Mendocino counties.
