Agricultural Reinvestment Fund

The Growing Innovation project was inspired by farmers. At our small nonprofit organization, we work with farmers who amaze us everyday with their ingenuity and determination. Over the past 17 years, we've documented hundreds of successful farmer-led projects. We want to celebrate and share their innovative ideas by creating an online library and a new book.

The online library will include interactive maps of farm projects along with plans, budgets, and other useful information. The book will feature some of the most exciting projects we've seen yet. This project will benefit farmers across the country who are interested in starting innovative farm enterprises and developing new sources of agricultural income.

The Agricultural Reinvestment Fund helps farmers stay on the land, successfully grow their businesses and strengthen rural economies. In exchange, the farmers receiving RAFI grants give back to their farming communities by sharing their project ideas and lessons learned. The Fund assists farmers in developing new sources of agricultural income through provision of cost-share grants.

According to a recent University of North Carolina at Greensboro study, the impacts of these grants are widespread. Each dollar invested by RAFI turns into $204 in the local economy, each grant supporting an average of 4 farm jobs and 220 acres maintained in production, and at least 4 unfunded farms use the lessons learned for each funded project.

The Agricultural Reinvestment Fund is supported by the North Carolina Tobacco Trust Fund Commission.
