Workshop: Explore Farming

11:30 am – 1:30 pm


Have you ever thought you might like to make
a business out of growing vegetables or raising animals? This workshop and
discussion session is designed to help you start thinking about your future
farm business - and whether or not starting a farm business is right for you.
We will talk about agriculture in New England, the challenges and rewards of
starting a farm business, what resources and knowledge you will need in order
to start farming, and some ways you can get involved in growing food without
the risk of starting a business.
