2016 Fund-A-Farmer Grant Application Open

Food Animal Concerns Trust (FACT )is currently accepting applications for our 2016 Fund-a-Farmer grants!

During the next round of grant funding, which will be awarded in March 2016, FACT will prioritize projects that transition farms to being pasture-based or that improve existing pasture. We are interested in funding working, independent, family farmers who raise pigs, broiler chickens, laying hens, turkeys, dairy cows and/or beef cattle.

Applications will only be considered from farms already considered highly welfare-oriented as determined by holding one of the following certifications for their animals or actively working toward one of these certifications:

    I have a small farm with layers, pigs, beef cattle and sheep. currently our beef cattle(6 head and growing) pasture is an overgrown woods and has limited grass. i’m looking into moving them onto about 55 acres of pasture, but the fencing has not been updated in over 20 years and im looking at a way to bring water from a year round spring into the different sections of the pasture. i’m hoping to do some rotational grazing if I can make it work.

    My question is would I qualify for any grants for this project and what would that entail? thank you
