Establish Farming Series

Beginning farmers who have started to farm and are working to build their business plan should attend the Establish Farming series. Self-paced exercises will lead you through the process of using decision-making to build a farm plan. These videos and exercises will give you the tools to create your plan and use it to make decisions for your farm. Three virtual workshops will connect you to other farmers offering their experiences and answering your questions. Participants will receive free admission to the beginning farmer retreat in February 2022.

$20 for PFI Members | $30 for Non-PFI Members
