Exploring the small farm dream

The Penn State Extension is offering a course on small farming. The aim of Exploring the Small Farm Dream face-to-face short course is to help you learn what it takes to start and manage the farm you envision as more than a dream, as an agricultural business, and this course will help you navigate the process of starting a farming or small fresh food agriculture business in many areas including vegetables, gardens, cut flowers, and urban farms.

In this course, educators at Penn State Extension along with guest speakers from local farms and an agricultural banker will lead you on a journey to explore, organize, and evaluate many of the exciting and unique business and feasibility-related steps necessary to launch a successful agricultural farming business.
