Winter Online Courses for Beginning Farmers

The long dark days of winter are the perfect time to dream and plan for the next growing season, and if you’re already farming, to organize your records and look back at how last season went. Northeast Beginning Farmer Project offers several online courses to help you with this:

As always, our courses are taught by experienced Cooperative Extension educators, farmers, and other specialists. Courses are typically 6 weeks long, cost $175, and include both real-time meetings (online webinars) and on-your-own time reading and activities. We do not offer any academic credit, but those who successfully complete a course will receive a certificate and may improve their eligibility to receive a low-interest Farm Service Agency (FSA) loan.

To learn more about each course, please visit http://nebeginningfarmers.org/online-courses. From this site you can see our full calendar of courses, learn more about our instructors, see answers to Frequently Asked Questions, read details for each course, and even visit a sample online course.

Courses often fill very quickly, so don’t miss your chance to sign up today!

Development of new online courses has been partially funded by the USDA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Program, project #2009-49400-05878. Course coordination is provided by the Cornell Small Farms Program, http://www.smallfarms.cornell.edu.
