Are you an organic farmer, a future farmer, or curious about organic practices? This winter’s Farm Clubs offer a space for farmers, whether you’re a seasoned organic farmer or just beginning your journey in sustainable agriculture. These clubs are your opportunity to share your best management practices with your peers, learn from industry experts, and reconnect within our community. It’s also an opportunity to express the kind of facilitation YOU would like to see. Welding workshops? Application assistance? Cost-share programs? This is a chance to discuss with MOA the programming you would like to see.

What to Expect:

– Funding Opportunities: Discover all the current funding opportunities available to you as a sustainable farmer.

– Knowledge Sharing: Connect with your fellow organic farmers, share your experiences, and gain valuable insights for your farm.

– Resource Access: Get access to human and online resources to help your farm excel. Find out where to rent specialized equipment, share custom work opportunities, and more.

– Best Management Practices: Dive into the nitty-gritty of organic farming with discussions and workshops on the most effective management practices.
