Apprentices and Mentor Farmers
Tri-State CRAFT (Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training) creates a mentor network of established farmers dedicated to enhancing the educational opportunities for apprentices and new farmers in our region. The goal of the program is to share the collective knowledge of these experienced farmers to insure the success of the next generation of farms and farmers. Through field days and on-farm seminars, CRAFT educates and connects a network of farmers.
Providing production basics, farmer case studies, supplies lists and more; the attached apprentice reader is available for mentor farmers to share with their apprentices.
