Marketing Grants Available to Harford County Farms

The Harford County Agricultural Marketing Cooperative, Inc. has announced the availability of grants for 2014.  The Cooperative was created to improve the economic viability of production agriculture in Harford County and, among other endeavors, is a vehicle for the distribution of up to $75,000 provided by Harford County Government. Grants will be open to all farmers in Harford County.  Priority will be given to a new product from the existing operations and to new marketing for new or existing products or services.  Additional weight will be given to a new enterprise over the expansion of an existing enterprise.  Grant funds are generally intended to fund immediate needs of the proposed project and can fund a variety of things including marketing or equipment for a product.  A three-year commitment to continue the enterprise is required.  The Cooperative’s Board of Directors may monitor the enterprise during the initial three-year period.
