Farm Beginnings Year Long Training, Now Virtual

August 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Looking to launch or adapt/ expand your farming business?

Join this 200+ hour Farm BeginningsĀ® Farmer Training Program, beginning Aug. 1!

Many skills are required to start a successful farm: passion, clear goals, production experience, financial and marketing know-how, and more. The Farm BeginningsĀ® class is a 12-month training session that uses holistic management to help beginning farmers clarify their goals and strengths, establish a strong enterprise plan and start building their operation. In response to the need for virtual learning opportunities during the pandemic, we have restructured this training series from in-person workshops to an online class, which includes a mixture of live virtual sessions, recorded videos, resources and hopefully an in person meet up. Farm BeginningsĀ® is designed for new and prospective farmers who want to plan a profitable farm business. Students do not need to currently own land, but some farming or production experience is helpful to get the most out of the class.
