SARE is a grant making and outreach program. Its mission is to advance—to the whole of American agriculture—innovations that improve profitability, stewardship and quality of life by investing in groundbreaking research and education. Since it began in 1988, SARE has funded more than 4,000 projects around the nation that explore innovations, from managing alternative pollinators to cover crops to myriad other best practices. Administering SARE grants are four regional councils composed of farmers, ranchers, researchers, educators and other local experts. Coordinators in every state and island protectorate run education programs for ag professionals, and SARE Outreach publishes practical books, bulletins, online resources, and other information for farmers and ranchers. All of SARE’s activities are funded by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture.
