About

Our vision

FarmRaise equips producers with financial resources to build vital farming communities that are profitable, equitable, and ecologically resilient.

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? It's free to register a FarmRaise account, match with grants, and apply for 3 federal programs currently on the platform. In 2021, we'll offer a $50/mo subscription service to help you identify and unlock big profit-boosting opportunities for your farm. Our team will manage the paperwork, deadlines, and help you meet your farming goals. We'll also offer a streamlined common application for dozens more grant and loan programs, charging a small fee-for-success on any funding successfully unlocked.

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!
