Zoom- Starting Your Farm Session 1: Accessing Resources September 18 5-7pm

The “Starting Your Farm” workshop is a three-part Zoom series. First up is “Accessing Resources.” If you are interested in starting a farm, it is never too soon to consider your options of how to access land and capital resources. Join Maine’s field agent for Land For Good and Bo Dennis, MOFGA’s Beginning Farmer Specialist, to brainstorm about your future farm, the land base you’ll need and the variety of ways to achieve your farm dream. This session will include time for you to hear from others, reflect on your goals and learn about the resources available to support you in farming in Maine. A Zoom link will be sent to all registrants.

Zoom- Starting Your Farm Session 2: Selecting Enterprises October 16 5-7pm

Once you have begun to explore your options for starting a farm, it is important to consider what you plan to grow and sell. Join Nicolas Lindholm, MOFGA’s Business and Marketing Specialist, for an interactive workshop on enterprise selection and financial planning. We will discuss enterprise budgeting and market channel considerations, and how they influence what you might choose to focus on your farm. A Zoom link will be sent to all registrants.
