Apply to Participate in Farm Beginnings Today
Participants get the most out of Farm Beginnings when they come to the class equipped with some hands-on agricultural experience and a strong interest in starting a farming enterprise. Before you apply, get in touch with a Farm Beginnings facilitator and check out a sample class outline to make sure this is the right program for you at this time.
The Farm Beginnings class fee is $1,500 and the application deadline is Sept. 1, 2016. This fee covers one "farm unit"—either one farmer or two farming partners who are on the same farm. A $200 deposit is required with your application, and will be put towards the final fee. Apply by August 1, 2016, to receive a $100 discount. Payment plans are available, as well as a limited number of scholarships.
