We recently received notification from the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) of the following grant opportunity geared toward those interested in transitioning to organic production.

The Path-To-Organic Program offers funding to eligible for-profit enterprises that produce farm commodities, including agricultural, horticultural, aquaculture, vegetable, fruit and floricultural products; livestock and meats; poultry and eggs; dairy products; nuts; mushrooms; honey products; and forest products.
