The four-session course begins July 11 and will take participants through the process of setting personal and farming goals, assessing available resources, determining if farming as a business is right for you and developing an action plan to guide next steps.
The course is for people thinking about full-time farming, farming part-time while continuing other employment, changing careers to start a farm, taking over an existing family farm business and/or developing an existing but informal agricultural pastime into a more serious business activity
Established farmers who are re-strategizing their businesses have also benefited from the course.
Course instructor, Katie Myers-Griffith, is the Countryside Conservancy’s Farmland Programs coordinator.
