Stateline Farm Beginnings® is a yearlong course, with 60+ contact hours of class time, designed to help launch or expand your farm business. The program has three courses: Farm Dreams Intensive, Skills Building Practicum, and Farm Business Intensive.
The first course begins in Winter by shaping your dream farm into a functional farm proposal and a personalized learning plan. During Spring and Summer, you’ll work with an experienced farmer in the region toward specified goals in your declared interests. In Autumn, we’ll focus on business development and finance budgeting, resulting in a business plan developed around your farm proposal.
Most sessions feature a regional farmer or expert panel segment, where you’ll hear first-hand experiences of innovators and professionals. Sessions feature a collaborative, group-learning space for creating lifelong friendships within a new farming network. Presenters include: farmers, university professionals, accountants, attorneys, Extension educations, USDA program personnel, insurance providers, bankers, and more.
