Beginning farmers can boost their farm-business skills through New Farmer U, a weekend training April 27-29 in Wisconsin Dells. The training is hosted by MOSES (the Midwest Organic & Sustainable Education Service), Renewing the Countryside and the Land Stewardship Project.
There will be 90-minute workshops on topics such as farm business planning, organic certification, farm law, land access and financing, grazing, soil building, and flower growing. A panel of experienced farmers will share what worked well and what didn’t work in their early years. There will also be 10-minute legal consultations, healthy movement exercises, and fun activities to encourage peer-to-peer networking.
Cost for the weekend training, two nights of lodging, and all meals is $125, with a $25 discount for farm partners. Details and register registration information art at www.newfarmeru.org.
