The New York State New Farmers Grant Fund, which will provide assistance to new and early stage farmers and encourage farming as a career path to sustain and grow agribusiness across New York State, is now accepting applications. Empire State Development, in consultation with the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, will administer the $614,000 fund, which will provide grants from $15,000 to up to $50,000 for eligible early stage farmers who substantially and materially participate in the production of an agricultural product on a commercial farm operation within New York. The deadline for applications is January 28, 2015. For more information on the grant fund and application process, click here.
