Young, Beginning and Small Farmers Program
We’re Committed to Seeding the Market with Young, Beginning and Small Farmers
In marketing, seeding is the process of allocating marketing to target a specific group of customers. The idea is to encourage faster adoption of a product or concept. And while our concept of seeding agriculture with young, beginning or small farmers is a bit different, the broader intent is the same.
We understand our industry’s future depends on young, small and beginning farmers, and it’s our goal to make sure the next generation doesn’t find themselves burdened by unreasonable barriers to entry.
Our Shared Future Depends on You
