Michael Fields Agricultural Institute provides free Grants Advising services with priority to two target groups in the Midwest. While their services are open to all farmers and agricultural entrepreneurs, priority is given as follows: • In Wisconsin: All new or existing producers and agriculture-related businesses, as well as those working with them. Agriculture includes forestry and fisheries. • In the Midwest: Beginning farmers, limited resource farmers, socially disadvantaged farmers and/or military veterans, as well as young organizations working with these farmers.
