For the last four years, the National Young Farmers Coalition (Young Farmers) has partnered with Chipotle to support young and beginning farmers and ranchers in starting up and growing their businesses with a flexible funding opportunity each spring. 

Young Farmers is now offering $5,000 and a one-year membership to the National Young Farmers Coalition to 50 farmers/ranchers. Applicants are asked about the barriers to their agriculture career and how the funds would help them address these barriers.

Young Farmers is accepting applications through Monday, January 15th, 2024 at 3:00 p.m. ET.  

Further details may be found on the Young Farmers’ Farmer Grants webpage, where farmers and ranchers can find the application form and information on applying in English and Spanish.

In addition, Young Farmers will hold online Q&A sessions on January 3 and January 8, 2024. Register online to receive a link to the Zoom call.

Young Farmers request that potential applicants review the FAQs for the program. If you have remaining questions, send an email to
