The Carrot Project

About Us

Organizational Overview

The Carrot Project (http://www.thecarrotproject.org/) works toward a just and resilient farm and food system. The entrepreneurs we serve face barriers to becoming financially viable, so we support them to develop financial management skills, by providing information, training, skill-building, and capital, within a carefully crafted ecosystem of support.

The Carrot Project’s work is grounded in a commitment to racial equity and an inclusive sector. The majority of our clients are in their first generation of operating a farm or food enterprise, including beginning farmers and pre-revenue startups. Overall, 90% of our clients are BIPOC, women or low-income/limited resource. Currently, 50% of our educational offerings and 20% of our 1:1 in-depth business advising services are provided specifically to BIPOC clients.

We combine our on-the-ground programs with our research, collaboration, and advocacy to create transformational change on farms, across our region, and at a national scale. We intentionally pivot our programs to respond to our clients’ changing needs. Our deep network of collaborative partnerships is one of our core strengths, and we design our programs to address sector gaps.

One of our programs catalyzing systemic change is the Agricultural Viability Alliance (www.thecarrotproject.org/agricultural-viability-alliance/), which connects farm, food and forestry viability advisors in New England and the Hudson Valley.

The Carrot Project is a fiscally sponsored organization of TSNE (www.tsne.org/).
