New Farmer Training Program
New farmers take part in a 8-month intensive training program that features both formal coursework and hands-on training in all aspects of running an agricultural business. 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. Now accepting applications for our 2016 training season.

Farm Incubator
New farmers who can demonstrate adequate skills and solid business plans may launch their own farms on the incubator portion of the Seed Farm. Produce and market your own products, while having access to land, equipment and infrastructure at reduced rates. Incubator farmers will also receive continued guidance from experienced local farm mentors and Seed Farm staff.
