VCLF's Food, Farms & Forests Fund gives investors the opportunity to invest in working lands entrepreneurs and natural resources-based businesses including agriculture, food production & sustainable forestry.

VCLF has always sought to honor and support Vermont’s working landscape, support local economies and create opportunities for lower-income Vermonters. For twenty years, we've been an alternative source the capital for farmers, food producers and natural resources entrepreneurs.

But we want to do more! So in 2015 we launched a new, focused loan fund, the Food, Farms & Forests Fund, to consolidate, grow and sustain the capital and supporting services that VCLF makes available to meet the needs of small farms, food producers, and the working landscape throughout Vermont. It’s an opportunity for philanthropists, foundations and other institutions to dedicate their VCLF investment and grant-making to creating positive impacts to benefit these critical drivers of our state’s economy, small communities and public health.

Since its 2015 launch, the Food, Farms & Forests Fund has provided almost $1.5 million in financing to twelve entrepreneurs, creating or preserving jobs for 107 Vermonters managing over 650 acres of working landscape to produce 8.6 million pounds of food.
