Founded by Clara Coleman of Four Season Farm http://fourseasonfarm.com/real-farmer-care/, Real Farmer Care’s founding mission is to support farmer’s self-care needs, especially BIPOC farmers (Black, Indigenous, People Of Color), and allocate donated funds directly to farmers.
Self-care activities are inexpensive, but rarely prioritized. Farmer self-care looks like treating themselves to a delicious dinner at one of the restaurants where they supply local products, a deep tissue massage for their overworked muscles, a family fun day outing, a date night with their partner while their kids have a babysitter, or even a new pair of boot insoles for their tired feet.
Fifty percent of Real Farmer Care recipients are BIPOC farmers. BIPOC farmers are disproportionately impacted in access to land, education and capital by systemic racism. On top of all of the common challenges that exist in farming, this means that BIPOC growers face substantial additional hurdles that impact their everyday wellness and livelihood. Therefore, making space to center and prioritize their needs in the Real Farmer Care project is paramount.
The more we care for our farmers, the more successful they can be at caring for themselves, our communities, and the land. Please support Real Farmer Care with a donation today.
