The Working Farms Fund builds on the strength of The Conservation Fund’s dual mission—to support both environmental conservation and economic resilience for communities across America. Our Working Farms Fund is currently being piloted in Atlanta and Chicago, with the goal to expand to other cities nationwide. Agriculture is rooted in a history of stewardship of the land and conservation principles. Farmers have long been our nation’s first conservationists. We believe that the Working Farms Fund will have lasting economic, social and environmental benefits not only for our farmers, but the communities they live in and serve.

Farmers in the Working Farms Fund are not just entrepreneurial, but eager and willing to put in the work to scale up their community’s food systems. Currently, we’re working with several farm teams in the Atlanta-metro area to rise to these tough challenges. Let’s meet them!
