A new grant can help fund important farm research.

Farmers and ranchers have a critical insight when it comes to improving their systems. Whether they need to limit off-farm inputs, reduce erosion, save time for family or community activities, learn marketing skills, or find other ways to enhance their livelihoods, farmers and ranchers can turn to the North Central Region SARE (NCR-SARE) for grant opportunities and information.

NCR-SARE’s Farmer Rancher Grant Program is a competitive grants program for farmers and ranchers who want to explore sustainable farming solutions to problems through on-farm research, demonstration and education projects.

The program grants individual ($7,500 maximum), partner ($15,000 maximum), or group ($22,500 maximum) farm grants for ideas initiated by farmers and ranchers. Projects may last up to 25 months, and about 50 projects are funded each year. Grants are awarded on an annual timeline, so apply any time.
