The Emerging Farmer Working Group was created during the 2020 session of the Minnesota Legislature. Its goal is to advise the Agriculture Commissioner and Legislature regarding the development and implementation of programs and initiatives that support emerging farmers in this state. The commissioner must periodically convene a working group consisting, to the extent possible, of persons who are, and organizations that represent, farmers or aspiring farmers who are women, veterans, persons with disabilities, American Indian or Alaskan Natives, members of a community of color, young, and urban, and any other emerging farmers as determined by the Commissioner.

Applications for the Emerging Farmer Working Group are due Oct. 2, at 5 p.m.
