Funded through the USDA and National Institute of Food and Agriculture, the Start2Farm and the Beginning Farmer & Rancher Development Program were created in partnership with the National Agricultural Library and the American Farm Bureau Federation.
Both programs were developed to assist people those new to farming or ranching, and those who have less than 10 years of experience.
General topics of resources and programs include:
- Learn How – Develop the know-how to run your farm or ranch business
- Find Financing – Find funding opportunities to help finance your farm or ranch business
- Locate Services – Find assistance with legal and technical requirements of farming
- Get Connected – Build relationships and connect with others
While the website is a little challenging to navigate, the resources are fabulous.
