Farmer/Rancher Research & Education Grant Program
The Western SARE Farmer/Rancher Grant Program focuses on advancing on-farm sustainability solutions by funding innovative producer-driven research and outreach. With a Farmer/Rancher Grant, an agricultural producer serving as the main applicant and Principal Investigator (PI) works with a Technical Advisor (TA) to develop a project (1-3 years in scope) that conducts both research and outreach on a sustainable agriculture topic. With the support and guidance of the technical advisor, farmers and ranchers integrate research and education to conduct on-site experiments to address social, environmental, and economic aspects of agricultural sustainability.
A person qualifies as a producer (farmer/rancher) if they have a for-profit operation and:
• Their primary occupation is farming or ranching and have a farm/ranch taxpayer identification number (TIN); and/or
• They are a part-time producer with at least $1,000 (or equivalent) of documented annual income from farming or ranching activities.
