December 2013 Issue Highlights Winter Learning Opportunities for Farmers

In this post, we’re highlighting the Ag Opportunities newsletter, a product of the Missouri Alternatives Center of the Missouri Cooperative Extension service.

The Ag Opportunities online newsletter is oriented toward small farms, new farms, and agricultural alternatives. The December 2013 issue of the newsletter lists a bunch of opportunities for learning this winter for farmers in Missouri and beyond. Also, the Missouri Alternatives Center offers many great resources for beginning farmers, which you can find here.

The newsletter is archived all the way back to 1990, with helpful articles such as “As a New Farmer, What Funding Opportunities are Available to Me?”; “A Series of High Tunnel Articles”; “Building a Low Cost Cold Room”; and “Financing for Beginning Farmers.”
