Mar 9, 16, 23, and 30: Small Farm workshop

Penn State Cooperative Extension is pleased to offer “Exploring the Small Farm Dream." Have you ever considered launching a small farm enterprise, but were not sure where to start? This is the course for you! Designed to help guide you through an initial exploratory decision making process, “Exploring the Small Farm Dream” bridges the gap between ideas and action.

What to Expect : Creative exercise, research and class discussions that will help you assess your skills and resources, interviews with local farm business owners that will assist you in deciding how to carry your dream forward, and the opportunity to connect with others interested in new farm enterprises.

Who should attend: Career changers and farm newbies breaking into agricultural pursuits, and farm apprentices interested in launching their own start-ups.

Small Farm Possibilities include a market farm operation specializing in heirloom vegetables, a pick-your-own orchard, a grass-fed beef CSA enterprise, a goat dairy selling cheese and yogurt, or a garden supplying cut flowers. Add your own small farm dream to the list!

March 9,16,23,30 from 6-8:30pm at the Penn State Extension of Allegheny County in North Point Breeze. For more information, contact Heather Mikulas, Program Associate at 412-473-2540 or
