Supporting small-scale family farmers.
BUILDING LOCAL, SUSTAINABLE BUSINESSES
Our Cooperative has been supported by Heifer USA since 2014. They provide training, education and resources needed to help small-scale family farms flourish. With a strong focus on sustainable practices and humane treatment, Heifer USA uses their 1,200 acre ranch - Heifer Ranch - to educate farmers on these methods.
ABOUT HEIFER USA
Nestled in the foothills of Ouachita Mountains, Heifer Ranch is a training center for small-scale family farmers. Animals and produce are raised on the ranch and the land is used to educate farmers of all ages on safe, sustainable and humane methods.
SUPPORTING A NEW GENERATION OF SUSTAINABLE FARMERS
With the average age of a farmer in the U.S. rising to 58 and one-third of farmers aged over 65, Heifer prioritizes training future farmers to develop more small-scale family farms and help connect them to consumers across the country. Over 1000 farmers are trained each year with Heifer’s programs.
