Farmers are aging out and not enough new farmers are taking their place. At the same time, organic food is one of the fastest growing sectors of the U.S. economy and restaurant's as well as consumer's preferences are shifting towards "local". This seems like a ripe opportunity for new and beginning farmers to seize the market, however the barriers for entry into farming can be steep. Access to land, equipment, knowledge, and markets all stand as hurdles for new and beginning farmers. Green Country Permaculture and Green Core are teaming up to provide access to training to bridge the knowledge gap for internship farmers. GCP and Green Core will also be able to offer access to land, shared equipment, and markets for graduates of our program. Contact us today to find out how you can get on your way to market farming.
