Stateline Farm Beginnings - Applications Available!

Start or Expand Your Farm Business Today!

New farmers (and new-ish farmers) can benefit from good planning, good record keeping, and -- then -- good decision making.  Stateline Farm Beginnings can help with all of that.  Applications are now being accepted for our 12th year of programming that starts October 8, 2016.  Stateline Farm Beginnings is a year-long program that includes winter course sessions, on-farm field days, and a farmer-advisor.  We have a proven track record with roughly 70% of our program participants launching new farm businesses.  Why does it work, you ask?  Because our program is unique in that is is farmer led, community based, and focused on sustainable agriculture.  Participants glean most of their information directly from successful, local, farmers who generously share their story of how they started, and specifics from their business practices like creative financing and solid record keeping tools.  

If you, or someone you know, has a farm dream, check out, or shoot an email to Sheri Doyel, Program Facilitator, at  Early bird discounts available through September 1st, with an application deadline of October 1st.
