Online Farming Courses starting in February

Learn to take care of business, grow veggies and oyster mushrooms, extend your season with high tunnels, improve your marketing efforts, enhance your grazing practices, and start a beekeeping enterprise with our suite of online farming courses.

The Cornell Small Farms Program offers over twenty online farming courses each year to help farmers improve their technical and business skills. Students connect with other farmers, work on farm plans, and gain practical tips without leaving their home. Course content can be accessed anywhere with a high-speed internet connection.

Most online farming courses are six weeks long. Each week features an evening webinar and follow-up readings, videos, and activities. Students and their instructors connect through online forums and live chat. If you aren’t able to attend the webinars in real-time, they are always recorded for later viewing.

Online farming courses starting the Week of February 27 include:

BF 103: Taking Care of Business 

BF 160: Introduction to Beekeeping  

BF 121: Veggie Farming 2 – From Care to Harvest 

BF 220: Season Extension with High Tunnels  

BF 201: Effective Marketing for Busy Farmers

BF 231: Improved Grazing Management 

BF 202: Writing a Business Plan

BF 153: Oyster Mushroom Production 

Each course is $250, which entitles two people from a farm to attend. Upon registering, you will receive a receipt with a link you can use to register the second person from your farm.
