Lakewinds Organic Field Fund Grant Program

Reflecting our co-op principles and goals, Lakewinds has committed to support the local farming community through the Lakewinds Organic Field Fund (LOFF). Apply by February 6, 2015.

The LOFF is a grant program designed to provide funding for farmers who are working on the development and sustainability of organics through research and development, organic certification, transitioning farms from conventional to organic, creating new farms and land trusts for organic farms. If you review the current grantees and their projects below, you’ll see that Lakewinds is open to new farmers as well as established, and wants to serve a wide variety of needs.

Lakewinds’ Organic Field Fund is open to all farmers and farming associations, but preference will be given for farmers and farming organizations located in Minnesota, northern Iowa, and western Wisconsin.

“Our goal for this grant program was to strengthen our support of the local farming industry. Supporting the local food system is an integral part of who we are as a natural foods co-op,”
-Dale Woodbeck, General Manager

2015 LOFF Application deadline: February 6, 2015

2015 Grants awarded: mid-March, 2015
