AUSTIN -- In an effort to meet the current and future food and fiber demands of a growing population, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples announced Aug. 25 in a Texas Department of Agriculture press release the availability of grants for young farmers to create or expand an agricultural operation in Texas. The Young Farmer Grant Program is made possible by Texas farmers and ranchers who fund the Texas Agricultural Finance Authority. The deadline to apply for these grants is Friday, Sept. 2.

According to the 2007 Census of Agriculture, the average age of Texas farmers is 59, with only 6 percent of the state’s farm operators under 35.

In 2009, Staples requested and received authority from the 81st Texas Legislature to establish the Young Farmer Grant Program under the Texas Agricultural Finance Authority (TAFA). The 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 by calling 1-877-428-7848. Applications must be e-mailed or postmarked by Friday, Sept. 2.
