We're here because farmers and ranchers asked for more accessible farm funding. We know producers are struggling to be profitable and aim to equip farmers across America with the tools they need to reach their goals. We demystify ag finance, eliminate stressful paperwork, and make funding more accessible to producers.
FarmRaise is $20/mo (cancel anytime) and offers real-time alerts on local and federal grant programs, a simplified, common app for cost-share and loans, and 1:1 farm funding support through FarmRaise office hours. Any grants you apply for with FarmRaise will incur a 10% fee for success. That means you only pay the 10% fee if you are awarded the grant.
Definitely not. The USDA and its affiliates (including the Farm Service Agency and the Natural Resources Conservation Service) provide crucial consultation and technical services to farmers (not to mention billions of dollars in grant and cost-share funding!). We are here to simplify government paperwork on the front end so that USDA agents have more time to partner with you. We also connect you to private funding opportunities in addition to government programs.
Nope. But we do partner with banks and lending agencies to connect their services to farmers.
At FarmRaise, we believe that accessible funding will help farmers to not only address their short-term financial needs, but also invest in long-term assets: clean water, clean air, biodiversity, and healthy soils. These crucial natural resources preserve the farm for the next generation while making an operation more profitable and resilient.
FarmRaise promotes the vitality of rural communities by equipping farmers with capital to invest in their operations for the next generation. Learn more.
We are a small team of farmer-obsessed entrepreneurs. Some of us come from farming families, others have experience working at the USDA, in agribusiness, in tech, and in agriculture finance. You can learn more about us here!
