Some past projects funded by the GTA Program include Farver Farms of Scobey, who received assistance to expand their products which take wheat and lentils from their farm to create mixes for healthy soups, salads and a lentil brownie mix. Windrift Hill of Conrad received assistance with the expansion of their goat milk-based soap, lotion and skin care line of products and also created 6 jobs.

The GTA program was established by the legislature to strengthen and diversify Montana’s agriculture industry by developing new agricultural products and processes. GTA grants and loans are awarded by the Agriculture Development Council, a seven member committee appointed by the governor.
