WPVGA Offers Grant

May 02, 2024

Here's an exciting opportunity for family farms raising children!


The Wisconsin Potato & Vegetable Growers Association understands the critical role that our family farms play in our local economy, the social fabric of our society and the supply of high quality food to the planet. We also understand that the challenges are great. The WPVGA would like to say “Thank You” for your tireless effort.

We have the opportunity to partner with an anonymous donor to extend two $5,000 Appreciation Grants to family farms who are raising children on the farm and passing on a passion for agriculture and land stewardship to the next generation. While our donor recognizes the value of farms of ALL sizes, there is no doubt that smaller farms have been fading fast in recent years. That is the segment of the industry that our donor would like to extend this gesture to.

Who should apply?
1. If you have minor children that you are raising on your farm and are included in your day-to-day operations (at an age appropriate level, of course!)
2. If your farm consists of 1500 Acres (rented or owned) or less
we invite you to request an application via email at: appreciationgrant@yahoo.com and return it by June 28, 2024.

Winners will be notified via email by July 12, 2024 and an announcement will be made in the weekly WPVGA Tater Talk newsletter. Tamas Houlihan, Executive Director of the WPVGA, will coordinate with the winners to receive their grant.
