Exploring the Small Farm Dream is a beginning farmer 3-class training series. Southern Oregon abounds with enthusiastic farmers involved in pursuing the commercial small farm dream. The aim of this three-session course is to assist those considering a small-scale commercial farming operation learn what it will take to start and manage a farm business and decide whether that is something they really want to pursue.
It will provide an excellent framework for new farmers to assess their skills and interests, learn the realities of farm business ownership, and become connected to local resources. The faculty of OSU Extension Small Farms Department teaches, guides and connects farmers to each other. In addition, we help find answers to all those questions that crop up along the way.
