The New and Small Farm College is a seven-week program that introduces new and seasoned farmers to a wide variety of topics. The program teaches participants how to set goals, plan, budget, and where to find resources if they choose to start a small farming operation. The course will lay out how to manage financial and farm records.
This August, three colleges are beginning in Wayne, Fayette and Pike counties. Sessions will be held in the evenings beginning at 6:00 pm with a light dinner followed by a 6:30 – 9:00 program on a different weekly topic.
The cost to attend is $125 and includes a resource binder, meals, all programs including Farm Science Review admission, and a soil test. Additional family members can register for $100 per person (excludes binder).
