AUSTIN -- Texans and Americans alike enjoy the safest, most abundant, and most affordable food supply in the world, but as aging farmers and ranchers retire, a new generation of food producers is needed.

In an effort to continue meeting an increasing demand for food, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples announced April 11 the availability of $150,000 in grants for young farmers to create or expand an agricultural operation in Texas. The funds are made possible through the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Young Farmer Grant Program created in 2009 and funded entirely by Texas farmers and ranchers. The deadline to apply for these grants is Friday, May 6.

According to the 2007 Census of Agriculture, the average age of Texas farmers is 59, with only six percent of the state’s farm operators under 35. The Young Farmer Grant Program is made available to individuals, ages 18-45, who wish to start or expand their own agricultural business in Texas. The applicant must be able to make dollar-for-dollar matching expenditures to sustain, create, or expand the proposed project. Individual grants may range from $5,000 to $10,000.

Applications are available at or by calling 1-877-428-7848.
