Grant Opportunity: Beekman Mortgage Lifter (From ATTRA)
A portion of profits from Beekman’s Mortgage Lifter pasta sauces is donated to assist small farms that have a viable, future focused, growth-oriented business strategy. Beekman 1802 will provide one $15,000 “Lift” and three $1,049 “Mini-Lifts” to small American farms. The program is open to agricultural businesses that fit the USDA definition of a Family Farm and have been in business for three years.
Entries are due by April 30, 2015.
Among the eligibility requirements found on the website is that the farm must have been in business for at least three years. This appears to be a nation-wide competition.
