About

Vision

FarmRaise promotes the vitality of rural communities by equipping farmers with capital to invest in their operations for the next generation

We are building a future in which soil health practices are adopted across at least half of all managed U.S. farmland acres. Scaling conservation practices across U.S. farmland will improve the resilience and profitability of agricultural production, further incentivize economic investment in rural communities, and attract young and innovative talent to the farming sector.

How it works

What is FarmRaise? We are a digital platform that connects farmers to funding opportunities (grants, loans, cost-share).

How can I get started? Take the FarmRaise Eligibility Quiz to see the grants you're eligible for, book a FarmRaise consultation to make a funding plan, and join our Launch List!

How much does it cost? We know that farming is a tight margin business, and this version of FarmRaise is 100% free for farmers. We will charge lenders a small percent of every deal we source on the platform.

Is this secure? We care about your safety and security, and we've taken every step we can to protect your information. You can review our privacy policy for more information. This platform is a secure resource for you to streamline your farm funding needs and save information for future applications.

I still have questions! Check out our FAQ page or shoot us an email at info@farmraise.us. We'd love to get to know you!
