We envision a just and resilient farm and food system, where successful farms and agricultural businesses are increasing in number and racial diversity, and are contributing to New England’s economic, environmental, and social well-being. We address the most important gaps at the intersections of financial security, racial and economic justice, financial barriers to farmland access, and farmers’ ability to weather major disruptions. We do this as business advisors and through education, advocacy, and research.

Farming is hard work. It is also gratifying work. It is not always financially rewarding work, but with due diligence to financial planning and wise capitalization, a small, diversified farm can succeed. The Carrot Project helped our farm with needed investments in infrastructure so that we could meet our income goals.
