The Problem

Farmland is a finite resource that is rapidly disappearing.

Land is quickly changing hands due to farmers aging out or leaving farming due to burnout or economic stress.

Starting a farming
business is expensive.

Farmers and ranchers lack the startup capital and access to affordable land and equipment to start a farming business.

We've lost the infrastructure
to feed ourselves.

3% of the food consumed by Montanans is produced in Montana, putting us at risk as disruptions to the food supply arise.
