Organic Farmers Compete For Best Innovative Eco-Friendly Idea (PHOTOS)

Stonyfield Farm has launched the Organic Farmers Grant a Wish Program to help fund innovative organic farming projects that can make a strong environmental impact or improve the long-term viability of organic farming.

Stonyfield and Organic Valley, the organic farming cooperative that produces milk for all Stonyfield products, selected six finalists from a pool of 72 farmer submissions representing 17 states from California to Maine. Farmers' submissions were judged on their projects' environmental impact, ability to sustain organic farming practices, and innovation.

Consumers can learn about and vote for the finalists on Stonyfield's Facebook page where project details and videos created by the six farmers themselves will be featured. This March, Stonyfield will award a total of $31,000 in grants: one $10,000, two $7,500, and three $2,000 grants.

Check out the finalists below.
