Farm Beginnings Program Aimed at Preparing New Farmers for Success

Posted: Updated:

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension is holding its first session in the Farm Beginnings Program at the end of May.

The program will be held at the Lincoln-Logan-McPherson Extension Office, 348 W. State Farm Road, in North Platte on May 25 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

The program provides educational training and support to help those interested in evaluating and planning their farm enterprise. Participants will engage in a mentorship experience and network with other successful, innovative farms.

The Farm Beginnings Program consists of 10 sessions spread out from May to October and cover a variety of topics. May's topic is "Building Networks, Value Clarification and Goal Setting".

Class participants will have the opportunity to learn first-hand from the farmers as they work on developing their own business plan as they progress through the course.

The program costs $500, and scholarships are available. A $50 deposit is required to reserve your spot and must be returned with an application.

A brochure and application are available for download at
