Hello Prospective Farmers!
Are you interested in being a farmer, but are not quite sure how to get there? The California Farm Academy (CFA), a program of the Center for Land-Based Learning in Winters, CA is a beginning farmer training program that helps you meet your farming goals and start your own farm business.
CFA is an 8 month program that trains beginning farmers in all aspects of agricultural production through field work, business planning, classes, and farm visits to give you a solid foundation in what you need to know to get started with your own farm business. At the close of the program you will have completed your own farm business plan and crop plan. Additionally, qualified graduates will have the opportunity to join the CFA Incubator Program and lease farmland for a reduced rate to help start your own farm business.
We are currently accepting applications! For more information see www.californiafarmacademy.org.
