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.  

Contact Finis at for details and questions.
