Grants Support Organic Dairy Farm Succession Initiative
Organic farm succession may be key to future of dairy farms
The transfer of working organic dairy farms to next generation farmers is one way to secure the viability and production of New England’s dairy farms. Grants from two organic food and farming supporters have helped to spur an initiative aimed at successfully transferring working organic dairy farms to the next farming generation. Pilot farm families will be supported to develop robust succession and transition plans that can serve as models for other dairy farms in the region. Read more about the project at this website.
