For those of us who may not be that familiar with the continuous challenges faced by Black farmers, I thought I’d start off the first day of Black History Month 2021, by reposting an article that appeared yesterday in the New York Times.
Below, I have listed a few organizations that provide assistance to Black farmers who live in the South:
Federation of Southern Cooperatives: Provides assistance to farmers living in states located in the Deep South (www.federation.coop).
Land Loss Prevention Project: Provides assistance to farmers living in North Carolina (www.landloss.org).
New Communities Land Trust : Provides assistance to farmers living in Southwest, Georgia (www.newcommunitiesinc.com).
