Black Farmers once made up 14% of all Farmers, today they are 1.3%. Farmers of color, particularly Black farmers have experienced a long history of discrimination. Losing 80% of their farmland over a century. We understand this did not happen by accident, much of this is a result of documented discrimination by the government. It is our goal at Urban Triage to support our Black Wisconsin Farmers as they strive to build financially stable wealth-building farm businesses with resources, programming, and support. We hope to lower the barrier to entry for Black Farmers to be successful in agriculture.
