This 8-week program will give you a degree of confidence operating your farm.

The New and Small Farm College is an eight-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.

Extension Educators will illustrate many different enterprises that can be profitable on land as small as one acre. The educators will show the benefits and pitfalls of each enterprise so that the participant will be able to pick and choose what may work best for them and what suits their interest.

Host counties may also include other activities such as a farm tour to give participants an opportunity to interact with successful small farm operations and their families in the area.
