Exploring The Small Farm Dream course
The “Explorer” courses are intended for those considering farming as a (small) business. Its purpose is to help pre-venture, aspiring farmers learn what it will take to start and manage their own agricultural enterprise. Explorer makes use of four, guided group sessions and a farmer panel of those who have already done what you are contemplating. It is based on an acclaimed workbook and is presented by an instructor experienced in starting farm businesses. Explorer was created to help you articulate the clear vision and goals you will need to guide a new agricultural venture.
