The goal of the Teton Farmer Fund is to increase the amount of good, clean, and fair food in our community by helping those who produce it.
Slow Food in the Tetons offers an annual fund to support local agriculture. Grant requests can be up to $10,000. Multiple smaller grants may be considered. Grant funds are raised by Slow Food in the Tetons and matched by Hughes Charitable Foundation and Teton Conservation District.
