“The Farmer Fund exists to support farmers in the face of natural disaster + help keep farmers farming.”

About

Founded in 2015, The Farmer Fund exists to support farmers in the face of natural disaster and help keep farmers farming.  We serve the farmers that feed the state of Georgia primarily through farmers markets, CSAs and restaurant sales.

The Farmer Fund provides an economic "stop loss" for our agricultural producers after natural disasters which include but are not limited to tornado, flood, storms, and drought (level 3) and damages resulting from them. We aim to help rebuild farms after natural disasters so that farmers can continue to serve our community.

We grant emergency relief funds to mitigate situations such as: crop losses due to extreme weather, loss of equipment or greenhouses in fire or heavy snow, and protecting livestock. The Farmer Fund is funded through proceeds from our annual fundraising event, The Farmer Fund Calendar, and private donations.

In 2018, Georgia Organics assumed operations of The Farmer Fund. We will do our best to honor the intent and vision of the amazing crew who got The Farmer Fund off the ground.
