MOFGA Farm Beginnings is a farmer-led program to help guide those with a strong commitment to creating a sustainable farm business achieve their goals.
MOFGA Farm Beginnings is a cohort-based, business-planning course designed for farmers and food producers with at least one year of sales records. In a peer-driven and farmer-led space, you will reflect on your past production season, set goals, and develop a business plan to help you achieve success. Sign up opens early October each year with the course running December through February with a holiday break. This is a required component of the Journeyperson Program.
While a fully remote course, applicants from Maine will be given priority because MOFGA is best able to provide resources and connections in this state. If you are located elsewhere, check out the Farm Beginnings Collaborative website to see if there is an organization near you offering Farm Beginnings.
Applications due November 1, 2023.
