Learn More About Other Beginning Farmer Training Programs

Angelic Organics Learning Center is a member of the Farm Beginnings® Collaborative. The Farm Beginnings Collaborative is a national alliance of independent regional groups of farmers and farmer-training support organizations working together to promote Farm Beginnings, a farmer training model that is farmer led, community based and rooted in sustainable principles.

Farm Beginnings is now offered to people in: Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana, New York and Maine.

Farm Beginnings was started by the Land Stewardship Project in Minnesota, in collaboration with a network of experienced farmers. To this day farmers participate at all levels, as steering committee members, classroom presenters, on-farm presenters, and on-farm mentors. Farm Beginnings offers new and beginning farmers a means to establish strong relationships with local farmers, businesses, resources, and consumers within a community network that supports and strengthens the local food and farming system. Farm Beginnings programs support sustainable farming by promoting farming practices that are ecologically sound, economically viable, socially just, and achievable for new and beginning farmers.
