Sprouting Farms Corp is a 501c3 non-profit located in Summers Co, WV, that supports economic development through agriculture in West Virginia and Central Appalachia. Our programs provide farm business training and resources and build the regional markets necessary to launch, support, and enable farm businesses. A 2014 USDA grant funded a business plan, which launched Sprouting Farms after receiving ARC POWER grant in 2017. Sprouting Farms builds farm businesses through five interconnected initiatives described below. We aren’t afraid to do the hard work, building these initiatives from the ground up, because we believe that these programs are important for developing the sustainable and equitable economy and community we envision.
