Good Farm Fund

Good Farm Fund
Ukiah, CA

Good Farm Fund was founded by a group of farmers, local food advocates, and farmers market managers to address some of the most glaring gaps in the food system. Our programs aim to improve affordable access to fresh, healthy, locally-produced food, and to give small farmers a boost with modest grants that can make a big difference. We wish to do this by maximizing impact and minimizing red tape. Our larger aim is to make small, local, and diversified agriculture a common pursuit of all sectors in our community to support economic development, local sovereignty, health, and well-being.
