Growing New Farmers for the Future

       The Seed Farm's new farmer training and agricultural business incubator programs help to start and maintain new sustainable farms in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley.

Why do we need new farmers?

-To grow fresh, healthy food for our communities
-To create jobs and further develop the local economy
-To keep farmland productive and safe from development
-To steward the land and protect our natural resources
-To replace the generation of farmers that is approaching retirement

The Seed Farm provides new farmers with training, equipment and land, eliminating the top three barriers to farm entry and opening doors for a new generation of farmers.
