Overview:

We organic farmers wanted to support organic research. So we established Farmers Advocating for Organics (FAFO) in order to help fund organic research, education and advocacy.

Grants are awarded to research, education and advocacy projects focused on protecting and promoting organic in ways aligned with these strategic priorities:

  • Go Organic, stay Organic: Efforts that support farmers transitioning to organic, preserve and increase organic acreage, and provide the training, development and resources needed to ensure future generations of organic farmers.
  • Amplify the Organic Voice: Efforts that educate consumers and other key stakeholders on the proven benefits of organic food and farming.
  • Increase Organic Farmer Profitability: Efforts that provide organic farmers with the information, tools and resources they need to be successful and profitable.
