What's the scoop on starting a farm? It's well documented that young and beginning farmers face many barriers to starting farms, including access to farmland, capital, training, and health care. Join us at Healing Poem Farm for ice cream (or an ice pop) and an interactive conversation among aspiring, new-entry, and seasoned farmers as we dish on this topic together.

The Young Farmers Coalition works to transform agriculture in service to our communities and stewardship of our natural resources, requiring farmers of all ages! Supporting a new generation of working farms will require leadership and engagement by all generations of farmers. We welcome farmers of all ages who share this vision to join our new chapter.
