Join Our New Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund Supporters

With fewer young people going into agriculture, many agricultural experts and sector leaders are concerned about the future of American farming. New organic farmers and entrepreneurs are needed to meet the demand for organic products that are healthy for both people and the planet. The Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund helps grow the next generation of farmers by providing financial support for organic education from kindergarten through college!

As of March 22, 2018, the CCOF Foundation is grateful and excited to welcome the following new supporters of the Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund:

 

Capay Organic

Capay Organic, Farm Fresh to You

"Capay Organic is a second-generation organic farm that got its start in the Coastal Ranges' Capay Valley, 90 miles northeast of San Francisco. The farm was founded by Kathleen Barsotti and Martin Barnes in 1976, marking the early stages of the organic foods movement."

We are honored that Capay Organic CEO Thaddeus Barsotti is a member of the CCOF Board of Directors.
