Sharing our resources. Cultivating successful farmers.
This website is the product of a collaborative process with beginning farmers and farm service providers throughout the state who want the information and services for beginning farmers to be coordinated and easy to find.
This site features:
- A searchable Resource Map for beginning farmers
- A Resource Finder to guide beginning farmers through the resources
- A Referral Network to personally answer questions and help find resources
- A state-wide Calendar of beginning farmer events
- A farm jobs/internships posting board
- Profiles of successful farmers in MA
- Blog posts with useful advice to beginning farmers
- Service providers can add their resources for beginning farmers.
- Farmers can receive updates from the site when a new resource is added.
- Events can be added by farmers or service providers.
If you have a topic that you'd like to blog about, please e-mail Margiana Petersen-Rockney, the BFN/Mass Coordinator.
