Connecticut Department of Agriculture
Agriculture Commissioner Bryan Hurlburt announces that the Connecticut Department of Agriculture has awarded 16 grants totaling $547,784.41 to strengthen the economic viability of Connecticut farmers and agricultural cooperatives seeking to expand, diversify, and improve their existing operation.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has shown how vulnerable our food system is. This year’s Farm Transition Grant awards were used to expand and diversify our local food systems, generate on-farm energy production, and the traditional expansion of farm operations into new production,” said Hurlburt. “Connecticut farmers are innovative and entrepreneurial, and these awards will help them manage the risk in their expansion plans. Ultimately, these investments strengthen the agricultural economy and provide improved availability of Connecticut Grown products.”
