Application for Beginning Farming Academy September 2019


Application for Beginning Farming Academy

September 13 & 14, 2019

UC Cooperative Extension, Dewitt Center, Auburn, California

This is a 2-day intensive introduction to starting a small commercial farm or ranch. If you are considering starting a small ag operation in the foothills, you should attend the Academy. Learn about assessing your resources and choosing products, the basics of market-driven farming, and economic tools. You will finish with an action plan for jump-starting your operation.

This workshop does not address production practices. It is focused on marketing, business, and economic planning for profitable small farms. Local expert farmers and ranchers and UCCE Farm Advisors will help you refine your plans for your farm or ranch.

To apply, please complete the on-line application form. Please answer the questions as completely as possible, as your acceptance is based on the information provided in your application.
