Overview

New Farmer Training and Agricultural Business Incubation

The Seed Farm offers a new farmer training program and agricultural business incubator, in partnership with Penn State Extension's Start Farming program and Lehigh County.

New farmers take part in a 9-month intensive training program that features both formal coursework and hands-on training in all aspects of running an agricultural business. Our apprentices gain real-world farm management experience through The Seed Farm's unique combination of decision making responsibility, tractor training, marketing experience, and business plan creation.

After graduating from our training program, apprentices may apply for the opportunity to launch their own farms on the incubator portion of the Seed Farm. There they will produce and market their own products, while having access to land, equipment and infrastructure at reduced rates. Farm Stewards will also receive continued guidance from experienced local farm mentors and our Farm Manager/Educator.
