Farmers and food entrepreneurs obtain flexible financing and technical assistance that helps grow their businesses.
Community members invest in these businesses to help grow a stronger local food system.
Together, we all work to strengthen the local food economy — more vibrant farm and food businesses, more local jobs, and more access to healthy food in the Pioneer Valley.
