Join Us in the Grain Chain

AGC is a network of individuals, businesses, and organizations working together to grow a thriving regenerative Midwest grainshed. Our donors support the farmers, processors, makers, and other stewards tending to Midwest grains from seed to table. We welcome people of all ages, identities, and abilities to join us by making a gift to AGC.

We raised over $8,000 from more than 40 donations this summer in our first grassroots fundraising effort! The Summer Harvest Campaign has helped to grow AGC’s impact and the financial resources this work requires.

Expand the impact of the Summer Harvest Campaign with a donation or by joining Cultivate, our community of monthly donors. Your donation is instrumental to supporting the Midwest grain chain. Thank you for being part of our work!
