Farmer programs aid military veterans and advanced beginners | Cornell Chronicle

The Northeast Beginning Farmer Project, part of the Cornell Small Farms Program, was awarded $712,500 through the National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program. The money will be used to create community-based training programs and farmer-to-farmer networks to support what organizers call two underserved groups – military veterans and “advanced beginners” who have been farming from four to seven years.
