Lessons From Exploring the Small Farm Dream

Posted 4/9/2014 9:10am by Lindsey Parks.
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.

Seed Farm apprentice Renee Lang says that Exploring the Small Farm Dream “helped me to understand some of the specific administrative tasks associated with farming as well as the farm skills themselves. It's a structured way to assess the different skills needed to run an agriculture business.” 

This Penn State Extension course and two others (Introduction to Organic Vegetable Production and Vegetable Business Planner) are part of The Seed Farm's 600-hour new farmer training program. Please visit Penn State Extension's blog to read more about Exploring the Small Farm Dream.
