2020 Success Stories- COMING SOON!

We are so excited to share with you some success stories from the field! These stories will highlight how state and federal programs support farmers, fishermen, food entrepreneurs, and consumers in the Northeast.

The stories in this collection underscore the value in a diverse, nimble food system; our small-scale, locally-rooted organizations and hardworking family farmers have shown their ability to pivot, adapt, and rise to the occasion in meeting their communities’ needs in such a challenging year. How can we work together to support a food system that helps all our communities obtain health, nourishment, and resources?

Through funding, programs, and state policy, we are asking you to support and be accountable to:

  • Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) producers, distributors, and organizations 
  • Beginning farmers and farmland transition
  • Small-scale, diversified, and sustainable farms
  • Comprehensive food sovereignty, food security, and health for all communities

These stories were a collaborative effort of the following organizations: American Farmland Trust, Hartford Food System/CT Food System Alliance, John Merck Fund, Land For Good, Maine Farmland Trust, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, New Entry Sustainable Farming Project, Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group, Pasa Sustainable Agriculture, and Public Health Solutions.

In the meantime, you can read the success stories from 2019!
