Farm Beginnings Year-Long Farmer Training

October 27 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Farm Beginnings is training the next generation of farmers in the many skills required to start and expand a successful farm business: passion, clear goals, production experience, financial and marketing know-how, and more. Farm Beginnings® will help you build these skills through one year of farmer-led training, mentoring, and networking.

We support individuals in clarifying their goals and strengths, developing agricultural skills, and growing profitable, equitable, and ecologically sound farm businesses. We use a holistic management frame, farmer-led classroom sessions, on-farm tours, mentoring, and an extensive farmer network.

✨$100 off tuition if you apply by August 1st!✨

Who should apply?
This course is ideal for those who are considering full-time farming, or part-time farming while pursuing outside employment. Farm Beginnings is a great opportunity for those wanting to change careers to start farming or develop an existing agricultural hobby into a more serious business. Students do not need to currently own land, but 1 season minimum of experience doing farming or garden work in the last five years is required.

Apply today! Scholarships are available.
