Each year, Slow Food St. Louis awards micro-grants to local farmers who are doing great things for the St. Louis food scene—whether it’s supplying local chefs with fresh produce, selling their goods at community farmers’ markets or offering Community Supported Agriculture programs. The focus of the grant program is to help farmers diversify their crops and develop a niche for themselves by growing heirloom vegetables or raising heritage livestock. The program has distributed nearly $20,000 over the past three years, supporting more than 200 heirloom crops and heritage breed animals.
