Beginning Farmers Project

Helping New Farms be Successful Through Education

The Beginning Farmer Project's mission is to connect beginning farmers with affordable education.  We believe that education is key to a small farmers success in the formative years of a year and could be the difference between a farm thriving or failing. We have worked with 36 farmers since we began and plan to help 100 more before the end of 2019.

This current initiative is to give those who would otherwise not be able to afford an online course the chance to take advantage of the great benefits of a course during those initial years of setting up their farm business. If
