Harold Grinspoon Foundation Local Farmer Awards

Harold Grinspoon Foundation Local Farmer Awards
Recognizing that farming is essential to our community, the Harold Grinspoon Charitable Foundation and Big Y awarded 47 local farmers from the Berkshires to the Pioneer Valley $2,500 to make physical infrastructure improvements to their farms. The application is open until the end of January and is open only only to CISA and Berkshire Grown member farms. Applications are reviewed in February, and farmers hear from the Harold Grinspoon Charitable Foundation in March about the decisions. Check are issued in late March. The goal of the Local Farmer Awards is to strengthen farmers’ ability to compete in the marketplace so that our region benefits from the environmental, health, and economic advantages of local farming. A farmer appreciation event is held yearly for all applicants and awardees to honor and recognize our farmers and promote the importance of local farming.
