Farmer Training Initiative
Sustainable farms can provide farm families with a good quality of life; protect our land, air, and water; and support the local economy. Yet in the US, farmers over 65 outnumber those under 35 by 3-to-1. More than 400 million acres of farmland will change hands in the next twenty years. Will it be farmed? Where will the next generation of farmers come from? How will they find the support needed to succeed?
Angelic Organics Learning Center’s Farmer Training Initiative is working to train our next generation of sustainable farmers. We help urban and rural people learn directly from our region’s best farmers and begin growing for market. Led by experienced farmers from the Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT), we offer business planning (Stateline Farm Beginnings®), on-farm training, and mentoring.
