Alternative Agriculture resources, Beginning Farming, Heirs Property Issues, and Veteran Farmer Resources. Topics will include:
Specialty crop marketing;
FSA and NRCS program opportunities;
Resolving Heirs Property Issues;
Raising alternative livestock, including goats (and possibly rabbits).
This free workshop is sponsored by the Golden Triangle RC&D and made possible through grant funds provided by the USDA Office of Advocacy and Outreach. Golden Triangle RC&D has resources available to assist Historically Underserved Producers (beginning, limited resource, socially disadvantaged and/or veteran farmers and ranchers) in completing NRCS approved farm conservation plans. These plans will be critical for farmers wishing to participate in Farm Bill programs.
