Funding for Farmers for High Tunnels and Organic Agriculture
Here is some information I just received from Stuart Lee with the USDA-NRCS. Looks like some great opportunities for our farmers!
On behalf of the USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) I would like to share with you exciting news about funding opportunities for seasonal high tunnels for crops and the Organic Initiative through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). Below, I have included a Web link that will provide you with information about financial assistance offered for organic agricultural production and seasonal high tunnels. As always, if you have any questions about the attached information, links or NRCS, please contact me at any time.
