Capital Farm Credit names 2021 farmers market grant winners
Capital Farm Credit continues to support rural communities and agricultural producers throughout Texas. Twenty-two Texas farmers markets were recently awarded grants from the association’s farmers market grant program.
“It is our priority at Capital Farm Credit to support farmers markets, the ag producers they support and the customers they serve,” said Ben Novosad, chief executive officer. “Farmers markets represent the foundation of agriculture and rural America. Distributing these grants allows us the opportunity to show our appreciation for the agricultural values they continue to cultivate in local communities.”
Capital Farm Credit awarded a total of $22,000 to qualifying Texas farmers markets to assist their operating efforts and longevity. Each program was awarded a $1,000 grant to utilize at their prospective market.
