The New York Farm Viability Institute offers several grant programs which fund a diversity of projects that address barriers and opportunities to farming in New York State. The unique combinations of collaborators, project delivery and design, program goals, geography, experience, farming practices, and much more, are responsible for much of the innovation in the state’s agriculture, as well as the continued viability of New York farming.
