The 2015 application for an Ozark Slow Food micro-grant is available now!
For 2015, Ozark Slow Food is seeking to increase the diversity of products available in our region. Examples could include season extension, new varieties that increase quality or diversity or new value-added products. A farmer could use grant money to supplement funds needed for row covers, drip irrigation or part of a value-added product.
Local farmers and producers who meet the funding criteria are encouraged to apply!

The original deadline has been extended, and applications must be submitted by December 31, 2014. Funding decisions will be made in January.

Ozark Slow Food’s Micro-Grant Program was established in 2012 to help grow the local food culture in our region by supporting local farmers and producers. These grants are funded by support from the community via OSF’s Fund Your Farmers event each summer. Micro-grants aid farmers and producers in diversifying and enhancing the production and distribution of sustainably grown, locally-produced food in the region.
