What We Do

We are unapologetically rural. We stand up for the small family farmer and rancher, new business owner, and rural communities. For more than 40 years, we've been a leading force engaging people to build a better rural future.

Interesting Info

Helped more than 462 producers in 2018 to grow and maintain gardens, and connected 1,353 customers to 36 farmers market producers.
In 2018, the Center provided business counseling and training to 1,349 individuals, of which, 64% were females, 30% were Latino, and 90% were low income.
Our goal is to expand our lending capital to 10 million in outstanding loans and add housing to our small business loans in the next 5 years.
