Wildberry Small Business Fund

At the end of 2023 we were feeling to struggle of our hardest year in business yet. We spoke to so many small business friends who echoed the same things, 2023 was HARD for small businesses. Many were just trying to keep their doors open despite coming in under budget, maxing out credit cards, and just trying to keep their heads above water.


This got us thinking about how we could help our small business friends, despite feeling the struggle ourselves... Enter the Wildberry Small Business Fund! The Wildberry Small Business Fund is a new initiative by Wildberry Farms to help micro + small businesses in our immediate area with financial aid to participate in the 2024 Wildberry Field Market Season. Our goals don't just stop there, plans for the Wildberry Small Business Fund extend beyond 2024!

Our first step will begin with giving financial aid to micro + small business struggling to stay afloat who would like to participate in the 2024 Field Market Season. Applications are now OPEN!

The second step will be offering financial aid to micro + small business struggling to stay afloat who would like to participate in other local open-air markets (outside of the Field Market). Our goal is to begin accepting applications at the end of 2024 or in the beginning of 2025.


The final step will be to offer micro grants to local micro + small businesses!

Our goal is to begin to offer this by the year 2026 at the latest. Micro grants will be between $500-$1,000 to help with daily operations.


If you are a local small business who would like to apply for the Field Market, you can apply here! Find out more information about the Small Business Fund, donate + apply for financial aid here.
