The Climate-Smart Crop

Participants, including underserved and minority farmers, would be reimbursed for costs associated with establishing and initially maintaining carbon smart chestnut orchards. The project partners would promote the carbon reduction practices implemented through this project and market the specially-branded chestnuts produced by members as a premium “Climate-Smart” food that can reduce consumers’ impact on climate change.



The project's focus is in Southwest Georgia, including areas in the following counties:

  • Early

  • Baker

  • Calhoun

  • Colquitt

  • Dougherty

  • Lee

  • Miller

  • Mitchell

  • Randolph

  • Terrell

  • Worth


Farmers will be reimbursed for 90% of the pre-approved costs over a 5 year period for the tasks required to transition their land to climate-smart chestnut orchards. Each task will need to be verified prior to reimbursement.
