We are very excited to announce that applications for next year’s Freshman Farmer program are now available here.
We want to see more organic farmers nationwide supplying their local communities with seasonal, organic produce. In order to help do this, we will help new farmers offset initial financial costs by allowing selected applicants deep discounts. In exchange, Freshman Farmers will maintain a blog, take photos, post financials, shoot video footage. We hope that by doing these activities, Freshman Farmers will help to educate and inspire the next year of applicants.
If you know of any first year farmers who are passionate about growing organically, please forward this information to them. Deadline for applications is December 31, 2008.
