The course will offer a realistic perspective on what it takes to operate an agricultural business to allow aspiring farmers to decide how agriculture fits best into their future plans. Anyone interested in starting a farm, specialty food business or other agriculture-related enterprise is welcome to enroll in the course.
The online class format includes self-paced modules and discussion boards, allowing participants to fit in class time when it works best for their schedule. In addition, a weekly webinar allows for real-time presentations and Q&A. All webinars are recorded and can be viewed later for those who cannot participate in the live presentation.
