At The Carrot Project, we envision a just and resilient farm and food system, where successful farms and agricultural businesses are increasing in number and racial diversity, and are contributing to New England’s economic, environmental, and social well-being. We support agricultural businesses securing their futures by breaking down financial barriers, and building their path to sustainability. We do this as business advisors and through education, advocacy, and research. We address the most important gaps at the intersections of financial security, racial and economic justice, financial barriers to farmland access, and farmers’ ability to weather major disruptions.
