Supporting Black growers today and impacting future generations

Bridgeforth Farms partner Bill Bridgeforth was one of only 15 farmers in the country named a “Champion of Change” by the U.S. Department of Agriculture back in 2014, and rightfully so. The Bridgeforth family story is inseparable from the history of Black land ownership and farming in America. We are committed to ensuring that the success story endures as a testimonial and sharing our knowledge to advance and support the interests of Black growers now and in the future.

Our leadership also works to cultivate a love for agriculture among future generations to ensure the sustainability of our global food supply. Learn more about our key advocacy areas below:
