San Juan offers new farmer support

Jul 1st, 2018 | Category: News

SAN JUAN – Are you a “new farmer” with 2-10 years of farming experience?  Are you looking for an opportunity to establish a farm?  With ample farmland, a retiring farmer population and a strong local food economy, the San Juan Island archipelago offers many opportunities for new farmers. Through funding from a USDA Beginning Farmer Rancher Development Grant (BFRG), several local organizations are offering support for new farmers seeking to establish a farm, including accessing farmland, mentoring, technical training, and business development.  For more information, contact farmer@sjiagguild.com or call 360-378-0095.
