Our online coach will help you create an individualized farm learning plan to help you grow your farm business.
The New Farmer Project coach will lead you through a series of questions about your current farm operation or plans for a farm and interests. It will help you assess your strengths and identify areas that are challenging for you.
The coach will then create recommendations to help you reach your farm development goals. Based on the information you provide, the coach will suggest key areas for you to build skills, knowledge and resources. The coach will offer suggestions for informational materials (such as fact sheets, videos and books) and educational opportunities (such as courses, workshops and webinars) and referrals programs that can help you succeed.
You may use the coach anonymously, or you may create a coaching account which will allow you to save your assessments and recommendations, and also to use our New Farmer Learning Plan Template to outline a learning plan for yourself for the next 3-6 months. Use the learning plan to focus in on action steps that will help you accomplish specific objectives. You can work independently or with a New Farmer Project advisor, who can offer suggestions and feedback. Interactive features within the learn plan template will allow you to ask question and discuss your ideas with an advisor.
Return to the coach with new questions that emerge as your knowledge, experience and farm operation grows.
