|Date:||Saturday, January 4th|
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension will begin its 6th Farm Beginnings® Program at the First National Bank (basement meeting room) in Syracuse on January 4th . The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension and the Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society are facilitating the Farm Beginnings® Program to be held in Syracuse. The Farm Beginnings® Program is an educational training and support program designed to help people who want to evaluate and plan their farm enterprise. Farm Beginnings® participants engage in a mentorship experience and network with a variety of successful, innovative farmers; attend practical, high quality seminars, field days and conferences. The program is unique in that several successful farmers participate in the program as presenters, explaining firsthand the nuts and bolts of their farming operation. While any beginning farmer would benefit from attending these training sessions, most of the farmers that present come from small to medium sized farming operations that produce and market many different diversified and value-added products. Many of these farmers direct market their products.
