Through our Opportunity Fund, LFG provides no and low-cost advising consulting services. We are able to offer additional in-depth services to farmers during these challenging times thanks to donor support and a grant from The Blueprint Initiative funded by the New England Food System Resilience Fund. The Resilience Fund is a joint effort led by the John Merck Fund, Kendall Foundation and 1772 Foundation to reinforce, restore, and promote the resilience of the region’s food system in this time of unprecedented disruption.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us, if even for a referral to the right provider. We can get you the support you need to understand and access relief programs for agricultural and other small businesses available through established federal relief programs.
