WALPOLE, N.H. – The Monadnock Food Co-op Farm Fund program, in partnership with the Cheshire County Conservation District, is now accepting applications from local farmers. Currently, in its seventh year, the fund has supported eighteen farms in the Monadnock Region.

Farmers may apply for grants ranging from $500 to $20,000. Funds will be used to support a range of projects, including the purchase of equipment and infrastructure, packaging and labeling design needs, farmland conservation, and technical assistance.
