Mission

Combining the awesome influential power of a music genre and professional athletes with agriculture to have a sustained positive impact on socially disadvantaged youth and their communities.


What is the Hip Hop Farmers™ Youth Initiative

The Hip Hop Farmers Youth Initiative (HHFYI) is an urban and rural agriculture project to train primarily socially disadvantaged youth to start a business in producing specialty crops as well as other related non-production enterprises such as food hubs, processing facilities, farmer’s markets, dry storage and cold storage facilities. This Initiative will also focus on training veterans, faith-based organizations, and community-based organizations. The immediate goal and positive impact of HHFYI will be jobs and economic stimulus in persistent poverty-stricken communities.
