RAFI’s Farmers of Color Network (FOCN) provides farmer-centered technical assistance and funding opportunities, and hosts networking events and gatherings to promote farm viability and strengthen agricultural communities. We serve farmers of color in the Southeast U.S. and U.S. Caribbean territories.
In the spirit of community building and resource sharing, we would like to invite you to a Farmer Buyer Connect event Monday, February 26, 2024!
We hope to provide a space where farmers are able to connect with buyers to expand their market channels. The event will be at Mystic Distillery in Durham, NC from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
Children are welcome to join!
