Agricultural Reinvestment Fund

Year Funded




This project provides cost-share grants to farmers in North Carolina for innovative projects designed to increase farm income and build markets for NC agricultural products. Priority is given to current and former tobacco farmers. This project is a proven model to increase farm income by mitigating the risk of entrepreneurship, replacing lost tobacco income with higher-value agricultural products, and providing NC farmers with models for innovation and entrepreneurship.
