Field School Winter Business Intensive for Beginning Farmers – Starts Nov 12, 2020
The ARCD hosts the Field School Winter Business Intensive for beginning farmers, which offers workshops on business planning, farm finances, and marketing. This year, because of COVID-19, we will be hosting all of the workshops online, meaning farmers from all across East TN are able to participate this year.
The Winter Field School will include:
- 8 webinars held November-March on business planning, farm finances, and marketing
- A copy of the book Whole Farm Management and loads of digital resources to help you hone your business plans (with the option to pay $35 for a printed resource binder & jump drive mailed directly to you!)
- 20+ agricultural experts from USDA Extension, NRCS, FSA and more! Plus, experienced farmers to talk about what’s worked for them.
Access to recording of webinars for future reference or in case you miss a class or two
- TAEP Credit! We are the only program outside of Extension in TN that has been accredited by TN Dept. of Agriculture. Beginning farmers can earn up to 2 Education Credits toward the 50% Producer Diversification Cost-Share Program.
