Producing Entrepreneurs.

Each class works through the obstacles of bringing a unique culinary product to market. From seed to sale, BoysGrow youth grow, harvest, package, and pitch their delicious ketchups, hot sauces, and other creations. Six BoysGrow products have made it to the shelves of our Kansas City grocery stores.

Help us grow.

We’ve seen 158 young men walk onto a farm and leave two years later knowing what it’s like to earn a wage. Most of our youth now dream of becoming local chefs, farmers, business owners, and most importantly, have the vocational and soft skills they need to achieve these dreams. The BoysGrow staff, our sponsors and board members dedicate their time to the non-profit to achieve this for every BoysGrow youth. We’re trying to farm entrepreneurs as much as plants. Join the cause and plant your seed today. Learn how to sponsor a youth
