10:00 am-1:00 pmCommunity CROPS Beginning Farmer Training Program Lancaster County Extension Building
Community CROPS trains people who want to start a farm business. If you would like to grow vegetables, herbs, fruit or flowers to sell at the farmers’ markets or local grocery stores, we can help you learn how.

Every winter CROPS hosts a series of workshops where you can learn from successful organic farmers, University Extension, and community business leaders. We will also tour established farms, and help you connect with the local food community. Interpreters and scholarships are available.

After you complete the training course, if you do not have your own land, we will help you access land at our training farm or in the Lincoln area.

If you have a desire to farm and would like to learn more about market farming and the CROPS Farmer Training Program, sign up for our FREE Explore Farming Class.
