Adding Profits to a Non-profit Farm
Sustainable means going beyond grant money
York Fresh Food Farms shares the same mission as other non-profit farms, but under the operation of Bruce Manns, its following a different playbook. He knows grant funding is fickle, and believes inner cities need commerce as much as charity. So he’s developing a business around a mobile market in York PA. In this 1 hour behind the scenes tour he explains how he’s adding a new “best practice” to urban farming – making money.
My goal is 50% of funding from farm sales. – Bruce Manns
