Exploring the Small Farm Dream: Is Starting an Agricultural Business Right for You?

Saturday, November 4, 2017 at 1:00pm to 4:00pm

840 Upper Front St, Binghamton, NY 13905

During this four part series participants will begin to think through small scale farming as a business (rather than a hobby), learn what it takes to start and manage a farm business and decide whether that is something they want to pursue. Through in-classroom education, peer support and self-study participants will finish the series being to answer whether farming is for them, and move onto working through a business plan.

The cost to attend this workshop is $75/farm or family and includes two registrations. Special preference will be given to NYS veterans and scholarships may be available to offset travel costs. This includes a workbook to walk through the four-part decision making phase, as well as refreshments provided at each meeting. Pre-registration is required. To register for the workshop, visit
