Lizards-200The Wild Farmlands Foundation is committed to building relationships between small wilderness farmers and their local communities.  We are actively looking for foundations, businesses, individuals, youth groups, schools, clubs and other organizations that want to partner with us to build a strong community of support for small wild farmlands.


chuy-250Small farms have the heritage, the knowledge, the heart and the opportunity to optimize and extend the delivery of premium quality produce to local communities while protecting and sustaining irreplaceable ecosystems for future generations. All Wild Farmlands farmer and advisor affiliates have agreed to formally associate themselves with the Foundation, our mission and vision.

Which innovations or practices will actually work under the specific conditions of each farm? The Wild Farmlands Best In Class program accelerates our affiliate farmers' access to proven beneficial sustainable and natural agricultural innovations and practices.
