Friend of CRAFT Information

ImageDon't own or manage a farm? Join as a "Friend of CRAFT" and enjoy the same benefits as a farm member.

(Please note: the $65 annual membership fee includes up to two household members.)

We invite you to join the Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT) if you are seeking hands-on training in sustainable agriculture. You’ll learn to farm directly from some of our region’s most innovative sustainable farmers.

Friend of CRAFT membership is $65 per year. Up to two members per household can join for one membership fee.

As a Friend of CRAFT, you will receive:

  • Invitations to all CRAFT Events, including the CRAFT Field Day Workshops held on CRAFT member farms (April-October) and Stateline Farm Beginnings (in-depth business planning course for sustainable farmers and future farmers).
  • The CRAFT Skills Evaluation tool to help you develop a training plan tailored to your needs.
  • Annual CRAFT handbook with profiles of member farms, training schedule, and training resources.
  • Access to multi-year learning opportunities that will help you advance from learning beginning farming skills to starting your own farm.
  • Networking opportunities with farmers and farmers-in-training.
