In this regard, there are many ways wherein the federal government gives a helping hand so this common problem faced by small farmers is meet. The usual way out of this lack of funding on the part of the farmers is through grants for small farmers being given by the government. There are many kinds and types of these grants for small farmers and the only thing that the farmer can do is to know and be well informed about these grants for small farmers that are available for them.

There are basically many agencies, both public and private entities, that are involved in reaching out to small farmers in their effort to help them survive. Of these many entities, there are many projects that have already formed wherein the main focus is to help give grants for small farmers.

One can inquire for example about the Small Farm Success Project. This unique project is a collaboration of nonprofits, USDA and land grant universities.
