Here at 2020 Farmers Cooperative, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since 2020, a group of Black farmers, seasoned and new, decided to come together in order to support and assist Black and Socially Disadvantaged farmers and ranchers. We view our success in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale, impact and effectiveness of our efforts. Just imagine what we can achieve together!
