We put our weight behind the farming projects and communities whose methods offer valuable alternatives to the intensive farming systems that are depleting our ecosystems and human health. Together, we can lift up the future guardians of our planet.

Over a third of all man-made greenhouse gas emissions result from food production and the way we eat is the single biggest driver of biodiversity loss on Earth. Changing our approach to farming will make or break the future of our planet.

We’ve invested in better farming and food with flavor for almost two decades. In 2021, incited to accelerate our impact and formalize our action, we launched Farm Fund and have since donated $100k to varied growing projects. With our backing, young farmers have taken on new land, diversified their crop planning, and built long-lasting infrastructure without having to compromise on their values or growing practices.

Through targeted fundraising, we invite everyone to put their weight behind the young growers who have the power to shape the future of our food system. We will match — and our investors will give a 2:1 match — on all funds raised to meet our target.

The people who grow our food are integral to all our lives yet they are rarely given the recognition they deserve, much less the financial support they need.

For entrant farmers, the challenges presented by today’s social, financial and ecological climate are real — systemic injustice, extreme weather, risk-averse financial institutions, labor shortages and rising costs. Without proper mentorship and support, growing is a daunting vocation that few young people consider viable.

Yet their participation is vital: fewer than 3% of farmers in the UK are under the age of 35 and the average age of the US farmer hit 58 at the last official count. Our experience at ground level brings these figures to life — many of our growers are over the age of 50, and few have succession plans.

If we fail to raise up young growers, we will be left with No one to farm our food in the next couple of decades.

Our Community of Grantees

Farm Fund exists to support young growers and back a better food system for us all. In focusing solely on entrant farmers of 35 and under, we want to build long term resilience into farming while giving those who might not otherwise be able to get a foot on the farming ladder a vital step up.

Applications Open: October 2024
Applications Close: End of November 2024
Review & Shortlisting: Dec - April 2025
Grants Allocated: May 2025


Our Farm Fund grants are open to farmers who are 35 and under in Australia, the USA, the UK and Europe who are committed to agroecological cultivation methods. Reviewing each farm on a case-by-case basis, we ask applicants to demonstrate how their project reinforces soil health, cultural preservation, biodiversity, access to land, accessible scale and education.

As part of our commitment to building a more inclusive farming community, a third of each year’s funds are reserved for young people previously held back by social, racial or economic barriers.

If you're 35 or under and this sounds like you, then watch this space. Applications for the 2024/25 grants will be opened later in 2024.

We exist to fix the food system.

People are more cut off from the origins of their food than ever. This makes flavor, nutrition and farming practices that protect the planet, almost impossible to find.

By working directly with growers, we create a more sustainable way forward for farming. By giving everyone the tools to understand the power of our food choices, we empower everybody to become drivers of change.

Now is the time for action. Join the food system revolution.

Go beyond four seasons

Each fruit and vegetable has its own season, with subtle shifts which happen every day. Follow their microseasons to unlock flavor at every stage.

Know where your food comes from

We know the name of the person behind everything we source. Recognize their growing artistry to find out exactly where your food comes from (and why that matters).

Make your diet diverse

Our growers work with varieties chosen for quality and nutrition, not yield. By selecting their crops you keep heritage seeds in play, add to ecosystem biodiversity and preserve unique flavors.
