Farm Ownership and Rural Growers’ Empowerment
Texas Rural Cooperative Center


FORGE is a project that assists the 16,000 Hispanic farmers and ranchers, in its 56-county Texas-New Mexico service area. The goal of FORGE is to provide outreach, training, and technical assistance to encourage and assist Hispanic producers of traditional crops and livestock to own and operate farms and ranches and to participate in USDA agricultural programs made available through the recently enacted 2008 Farm Bill.
