The Carrot Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating financing solutions for small- and midsized farms, limited-resource farms, and those using ecologically sound practices. Our program model is designed to incubate, learn from and establish alternative financing programs in combination with business technical assistance. They are helping to rebuild a farming system that offers stability to local farmers, provides healthful food for citizens, replenishes the environment, and is good for regional and local economies.

The Greater Berkshire Agriculture Fund will provide capital, as well as business and financial management technical assistance resources, to small and mid-sized farmers and farm-related businesses using sustainable or organic practices. These farms and businesses will serve markets within the greater Berkshire area or nearby states.
