Young Family Farm is a family-owned urban farm in the urban core of Kansas City, MO. Long-time residents, the Young family is committed to addressing food insecurity in their neighborhood by improving the residents’ access to healthy produce and empowering residents to grow their own food. As a part of their work, the Young Family seeks to educate others on the challenges and benefits of organically-grown foods, and can often be found harvesting their fresh produce directly from the ground for customers visiting their farm stand. Young Farmer’s Coalition grant funding will enable the Young family to continue their hopes of expansion, address a variety of marketing and operational needs, and assist the eldest daughter and full-time WFH mom, Alana, in obtaining childcare for her young toddlers so she is available to continue farm work.
