Grant awarded to Tinicum CSA

Jun 30, 2024 | Support for Local Farmers | 0 comments

Bucks County Foodshed Alliance (BCFA) began offering Small Farm Grants to farmers in the Bucks County region in 2019. The grant aims to provide funds to local farmers to make capital and other improvements supporting the farms’ long term health. It prioritizes farms that employ sustainable agricultural practices. So far in 2024, BCFA has awarded five separate grants to local farmers so far in 2024, totaling nearly $10,000. One of this year’s grants was awarded to Tincium CSA!

 

Tinicum CSA, a vegetable farm located in Tinicum, used its grant to purchase a new potato digger. Farmer John Crooke said, “we grow a lot of potatoes at Tinicum CSA. With this new potato digger I am so excited to speed up our potato harvests. I’m so glad that the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance awarded me their Small Farm Grant to make this purchase possible.”

 

BCFA was founded in 2006 to strengthen the Bucks County farming community and improve the availability of local, healthy, sustainably produced food. Since 2019, seventeen Small Farm Grants have been awarded to support farmers in the region. You can make a contribution to our Small Farm Grant here.
