Beginning Farmer Programs at CIAS
Posted May 2018
The Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems has been running intensive workshops for beginning farmers since 1995. Our schools, taught by experienced farmers, are packed with practical, how-to information, insights, inspiration, and a dose of the sometimes harsh realities involved in making a living from the land. These schools afford you the unique opportunity to spend concentrated time with grower instructors and a group of aspiring beginning farmers, learning what it takes to start and operate a small farm business.
