Workshop Session: Saturday III

Are you a beginning farmer who has farmed 5 to 10 years? Farmers like you are finding they face unique hurdles. At this stage, you might be growing your business and need more capital, land, and labor. Join us for a working session as we share both the challenges and the resources for “intermediate” farmers to help build resilient farming operations.
