Barnraiser Makes it Easier to Crowdfund the Food Movement

Barnraiser is a new crowdfunding community designed to power healthy and sustainable food to the tipping point. Barnraiser offers an easy way to influence good food by celebrating the stories of modern-day food heroes and collectively funding sustainable food and farming projects. Founded by entrepreneur Eileen Gordon Chiarello, Barnraiser launched in April 2014 and has successfully funded projects in food, farming, education, community, and media. “We are thrilled to offer Barnraiser to anyone serious about making a positive impact on the way we farm and eat,” said Chiarello, who with her husband, celebrity chef Michael Chiarello, has created award-winning restaurants and sustainably farmed wines.
