Reports and Studies

  • Baltimore Farmer Pipeline Feasibility Study (2020): The product of 10 months of research, interviews and listening sessions, this report laying the groundwork for Baltimore’s forthcoming farmer training program was produced with the generous support of the Kaiser Permanente Community Health Initiative.
  • Farm Alliance Story Map (2018): This story map builds on our Farmers Feeding Baltimore Report by explaining the context surrounding our work and providing case studies about how Farm Alliance farms are addressing the injustices in our food system.
  • Farmers Feeding Baltimore Report (2018): The information in this report is the result of a six-month effort to evaluate the social, health, and economic impacts of the Farm Alliance’s work within Baltimore City.
  • Double Dollars Report (2015): With support from the Abell Foundation, our Double Dollars program allows farmers to sell produce in neighborhoods where farmers markets do not exist and could not be supported. The Farm Alliance raises funds in order to double produce purchases for customers with food benefits, such as EBT and WIC. This program is economical for farmers and consumers and bridges an important gap in food access. We published this report to document the continued growth and success of the program. We look forward to creating strategic partnerships throughout the city to continue to expand upon this model and develop systems to create lasting change in our farms’ neighborhoods.
  • Case Study Booklet (2012-2013): This report was developed in order to share our experiences and lessons learned throughout our first two years working together. We hope the information in this report will be useful to other growers looking to work cooperatively, whether urban or rural. This project was supported in part by the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE), a program of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture.
