Business Start-Up & Development

The Rising Tide Community Loan Fund

Rising Tide provides a full range of one-on-one business counseling, micro-loans, technical resources and assistance to business owners where resources and opportunities for growth are limited.  Our goal is to support prospective, start-up and established small businesses whose risk factors make it difficult to obtain funds from traditional lenders, but who inevitably make up the backbone of a thriving local economy.

The Seed Farm

The Seed Farm provides new farmers with valuable, practical experience and skills on our training farm as well as the opportunity to launch sustainable farm businesses on our site in Emmaus, PA. We’re growing new farmers and growing the local food economy in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley.
