Berkshire Agricultural Ventures invests in safeguarding working farms, the food makers who add value to the community, and the entrepreneurs striving to create and expand markets by offering loans and grants.

We also occasionally offer small, targeted small technical assistance stipends and matching funds, depending on funds available and the capacities and needs of the individual farm or food businesses that apply.

Our new BAV Community Investment Fund will offer a mix of loans, grants and technical assistance stipends directed toward specific capacity-building purposes, including support of business strategy development and business expansion by including value-added products and branding.

For more information on how to apply for grants, please contact us directly.
