The Pine Cone Foundation cultivates a better food future by supporting farm, ranch, aquaculture and fish purveyors in California.
The PCF micro-grant application is open to established small California-based farms, ranches, fishing, and aquaculture operations that are looking to accomplish a specific project within one year. We accepted applications from October 12th to November 7th, 2022. Three grants from $2,000 to $3,500 were distributed in 2022. The next round of applications will be accepted starting in September 2023.
In collaboration with the Santa Rosa Junior College Foundation, we’ve established the Pine Cone Foundation Internship Program at Shone Farm. Our current endowment allows for three interns to be hired, and paid a living wage, each semester to learn and acquire farming and animal husbandry experience while they earn their degrees.
