Guidance for Farmers Direct Marketing Beef, Pork, Lamb and Goat






There is an opportunity for folks who have never farmed before to gain some knowledge and experience in the New Farmers Academy, a program supported by Tennessee State University and led by one of our staff, Finis Stribling III, the small farm specialist for TSU.  This academy is a unique school, meeting once a month from March through September.  This is a look at farm business and marketing basics to help build management skills.  Basic agricultural practices are also covered in each session.  There are a wide range of topics here, from plant to animal to value-added concepts.  There is also hands-on experiences with some of the sessions that will help develop production skills.  The deadline for registration for 2018 has passed.  
Contact Finis at for details and questions.
