August 1 - 2 | Emerging Farmers Forum 2018 at Pinhook Farm
The Emerging Farmers project is a proactive approach to address the need to reach out to emerging farmers and future landowners.

A goal of this innovative project is to help address a variety of social factors influencing the adoption of conservation practices and assist emerging farmers in the creation of a sustainable business plan for their operation.
