Farm Business Development Program

The Farm Business Development Program seeks to help launch new specialty crop farm businesses by making farmland, equipment, infrastructure, and learning opportunities available to socially disadvantaged farmers. 

Upon graduating from the program, farmers should have established markets for their produce, developed efficient and effective production methods, learned a broad understanding of critical farming skills including good land stewardship and business management, created a well-established farm support network, and documented a detailed business plan with historical financial records.
