Aprovecho wishes to support the growth of small farm businesses by providing not only land access but business training and support through our Sustainable Business Development program. As part of the farm incubator program, participants are eligible for a 3:1 matching grant of up to $12,000 which they can use towards the start-up costs of their business. This grant begins dispensing 6-25 months after approved application, dependent upon the amount of funds applied for. READ MORE HERE.
