Stateline Farm Beginnings® is a member of the Farm Beginnings Collaborative®, a farmer training model that is community based, rooted in sustainable principles, and farmer led. Through our membership in this one of a kind national collaborative, we utilize our direct connection with farmers, seeking to uphold principles of sustainable farming by promoting practices that are ecologically sound, economically viable, socially just, and achievable for new and beginning farmers. We are firmly committed to strengthening the local food and farming system, and to building long term relationships amongst farmers and the individuals and organizations operating within the broader web of support of the Illinois/Wisconsin Stateline area.
Applications are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis.
