Ignacio Mendoza received two grants through the CCOF Foundation’s Future Organic Farmer Grant Fund. Mendoza is a young organic enthusiast preparing to build on the farming success of his immigrant parents. Coming from a family of farmers (his parents own CCOF-certified Mendoza Farms), Mendoza is focusing his education on skills needed to operate his on organic farm one day. We hope you will watch the video produced by the California Strawberry Commission about the Mendoza family and be as inspired as we are by their journey from conventional farm workers to organic farmers. 

Gifts made to the Future Organic Farmer Grant fund help pave the way for aspiring farmers like Ignacio.

Please consider making a donation today and sharing this message as we let the next generation of organic farmers know they are not alone. Thank you for your support, consideration, and partnership as we continue to invest in these remarkable future organic farmers.
