Exploring the Small Farm Dream

Are you considering launching a small farm enterprise, but are not sure where to start?

Whether you are dreaming of raising sheep, growing berries, or selling heirloom vegetables, this class series will give you the tools to start making choices to determine if farming is right for you. In this course you will learn about current opportunities in small-scale agriculture, explore objectives, assess personal and financial resources, learn about preliminary market research, and farm business finances which will all feed into an action plan and guide your next steps.

Who should attend?

If you are exploring the idea of starting a farm business, this course is designed for you. This includes people thinking about full-time farming, farming part-time while continuing other employment, changing careers to start a farm, and/or developing an existing but informal farming pastime into a more serious business activity.


This is an online 3-part evening workshop series happening Feb. 9, Feb. 16, and Feb. 23, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. The workshop is $15 for the series. A farm partner can be added for $10. Scholarships and Military Veteran discounts are available. Contact Teagan Moran, by email or by calling 541-713-5011, for more information. Register online.
