Women's Farming Grant In WI

Asked January 19, 2017, 11:22 AM EST

Hi there, I am wondering if you would know about women getting farm grants in WI? I have a small farm right now with my family, we moved out to the country from the city almost 2 years ago and currently have 2 goats and 8 chickens, but we would like to do more. I tired googling this, but didn't come up with much and I am hoping for some help.

Thank you for your time,

Jen

Hello,

There are a few agencies that may have information about grants, cost-share and/or low interest loan programs.

Check the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture site -

Check with the USDA Farm Service Agency -

Also contact your local county Extension Office to inquire about funding options in your area - scroll down on this site until you see the state and county map - http://www.uwex.edu/about/cooperative.html
