Have you ever asked yourself, “Is farming right for me?” Are you currently working on a farm or have aspirations to start your own agriculture enterprise? Twenty-eight participants of Penn State’s “Exploring the Small Farm Dream” 2014 course discussed these questions and more during the four-session class lead by extension educator Tianna Dupont.
