Farm Tool Library

Opening this year!

With generous funding from the SIA Foundation and the Crown Point Community Foundation, we are excited to launch the Farm Tool Library in order to provide affordable access to farm tools, equipment and peer support to small farms throughout NWI. The farm tool library will feature small farming implements that promote regenerative practices, save time and labor for the farmer and allow farmers to test implements before investing on their own. Check back soon for more information or contact farm tool library manager, Virginia, at virginia@nwifoodcouncil.org.
