Beginning Farming Academy
April 6th & 7th, 2018
UC Cooperative Extension Placer/Nevada
This is a 2-day intensive introduction to starting a small commercial farm or ranch. If you are considering starting a small ag operation in the foothills, you should attend the Academy. Learn about assessing your resources and choosing products, the basics of market-driven farming, and economic tools. You will finish with an action plan for jump-starting your operation.
This workshop does not address production practices at all. It is focused on marketing, business, and economic planning for profitable small farms. Local expert farmers and ranchers and UCCE Farm Advisors will help you refine your plans for your farm or ranch.
The Academy runs from 8 AM to 8 PM on Friday, and 8 AM to 5 PM on Saturday. Meal cost for the two days is $75.
The class is limited to 15 prospective producers. Apply at http://ucanr.edu/survey/survey.cfm?surveynumber=24011
Applications will be reviewed and you will be notified whether or not you have been accepted.
