Farmers Turn To Collectives To Increase Chances For Survival
METTER, GEORGIA - APRIL 20: Handy Kennedy, founder of AgriUnity cooperative, prepares feed for his cows on HK Farms on April 20, 2021 in Cobbtown, Georgia. The AgriUnity cooperative is a group of Black farmers formed to better their chances of success by putting their resources together in order to reduce their overhead costs of farming, allowing for market expansion and creating a demand for their products to help bring higher profits and building a sustainable economic plan. The American Rescue Plan that was signed into law by President Joe Biden on March 11, 2021, gives $10.4 billion to support agriculture, with half going to disadvantaged farmers, benefiting Black farmers in a way that has not happened since the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
