In 2020, the Safe on the Farm Direct Marketing Cost-Share Program provided financial assistance to Minnesota U-Pick Operations, On-Farm Markets, and Community Support Agriculture (CSA) Farms to purchase supplies and equipment to prepare for safe sales on their farms and pick-up sites during the COVID-19 pandemic. Funding for this program came from the Agricultural Growth, Research, and Innovation (AGRI) Program.

We awarded a total of $12,688 to 53 farms in 29 counties.
