OEFFA Launches Heartland Farm Beginnings® Training

OEFFA’s new farmer training program Heartland Farm Beginnings® [ http://policy.oeffa.org/p/salsa/web/common/public/content?content_item_KEY=14360 ] is for you!

Applications are now being accepted for this farmer-led, community-based, field-tested program, which helps beginning farmers create successful sustainable agriculture businesses.

The year-long program begins in October 2017 and includes:
• A ten session, in-depth winter course
• Business plan development
• A growing season learning plan
• One-on-one farmer mentoring

The course fee is $1,200 and includes a membership in OEFFA and registration to the 2018 OEFFA conference. Individuals who apply by August 15 receive an early bird discount of $200. Space is limited! Learn more [ http://policy.oeffa.org/p/salsa/web/common/public/content?content_item_KEY=14360 ] and request and application to get started today.

OEFFA has partnered with the Farm Beginnings Collaborative (FBC) [ http://farmbeginningscollaborative.org/ ], a national alliance of regional groups, which offers Farm Beginnings® programs in 13 states. The program has not been available in Ohio until now. Hundreds of farmers have graduated from Farm Beginnings® programs, and it has a strong track record: 71 percent of graduates were still farming in 2016.

Looking for other resources and opportunities for early career and aspiring farmers? Learn more about OEFFA’s Begin Farming Program [ http://policy.oeffa.org/beginfarming ] and see what is happening!

Funding for this work is provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (BFRDP).
