Today’s Topic: Cost-share grants available through NCDA&CS for farmers markets, farmers and agritourism operations.

By on March 13, 2018

Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler sits down each week with Southern Farm Network’s Mike Davis to discuss “Today’s Topic.”

The NCDA&CS Marketing Division has a couple of cost-share grants available for farmers and farmers markets. Farmers who test their water supply as a part of a pre- and post-harvest food safety program, can apply for reimbursement of a portion of testing fees. Growers will be reimbursed up to $1,000 for lab analyses, and can submit multiple tests for reimbursement.

In addition, the division is also offering cost-share grants to farmers markets for half of the total cost of a market’s 2018 advertising costs up to $2,500.

Friday, March 16, is the deadline for an agritourism marketing co-share grant. More information is available online at
