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

Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at 5:30pm to 7:30pm

840 Upper Front St., Binghamton, NY 13905

Join Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County on Oct 2, 10, 16 & 30th for a 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 https://reg.cce.cornell.edu/2018smallfarmdreamexplorers_203.
