A farm is virtually a living organism. The tragedy of our time is that cultural philosophies and market realities are squeezing life's vitality out of most farms. And that is why the average farmer is now 60 years old. Serfdom just doesn't attract the best and brightest.
SARE is a program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that functions through competitive grants conducted cooperatively by farmers, ranchers, researchers and other ag professionals to advance farm and ranch systems that are profitable, environmentally sound and good for communities.
Western SARE is located at Utah State University in Logan, Utah and services the Western United States and Island protectorates, thereby being the largest region in the SARE program.
If you have a project or idea that could improve the sustainability of agricultural operations in your sphere of influence, you have come to the right place.
