Is starting an agricultural business right for you?
What is it?
“Exploring the Small Farm Dream” was first developed by the New England Small Farm Institute to address a gap in practical short courses for small farm explorers, who are interested in starting a small farm operation but, unsure how to evaluate ideas, opportunities and resources.. If you’ve considered starting a small farm enterprise, but aren’t sure where to start, this course is for you!
Participants can expect:
- Creative exercises, research and class, discussions that will help you assess your skills and resources
- Interviews with local farm business owners that will assist you in deciding how to carry your dream forward
- The opportunity to connect with others interested in starting new agricultural enterprises in our region
This is the third time the course is being hosted by the Local Food Project at Airlie and The Piedmont Environmental Council in Warrenton, VA.
