Southwest Georgia Farm Credit Supports Local Farmers’ Markets through Fresh from the Farm Program

Southwest Georgia Farm Credit is now accepting applications for its Fresh from the Farm Program. This program provides a partnership with local farmers’ markets by promoting and supporting farmers who own/operate produce stands that sell locally grown products.

Southwest Georgia Farm Credit began the Fresh from the Farm Mini-Grant program eight years ago as a way to provide cash for marketing and promotions to road side u-picks and farmers’ markets. Through an application process, the association picks 10 qualifying producers each year and donates $500 to each, mostly for marketing and promotional purposes.

The application for Fresh from the Farm mini-grants is available at the Conferences/Grants Link under the Learn Tab at SWGAFarmCredit.com. Completed grant applications can be mailed to Southwest Georgia Farm Credit, Attention: Fresh from the Farm, 305 Colquitt Highway, Bainbridge, GA 39817; emailed to JGilbert@SWGAFarmCredit.com; or faxed to 888.834.9128. Completed applications must be received by April 13, 2020.
