Growing Farms: Successful Whole Farm Management

 
Join us at the 2010 Growing Farms! Growing Farms is designed to provide beginning specialty crop and livestock farmers with the tools and knowledge to manage both the biological and financial risks of farming. This course targets farmers that are seriously pursuing production farming. It includes both classroom and field sessions taught by OSU faculty, experienced farmers, and professionals.  Participants gain the skills to assess their farm enterprise and develop a whole farm plan.  The workshop series also provides farmers with opportunity to connect with their peers and the small farm community.
 
Growing Farms is held in four regions of the state (Central OR, N. Willamette Valley, South Willamette Valley and Southern OR). It is designed for a target audience and is not oriented to everyone. For more information please visit our website at:
