Permalink Penn State Extension Programs Support Development of a Next Generation of Farmers

Penn State Extension recently reported on progress with two grant-funded projects designed to help develop the next generation of farmers in Pennsylvania. One project, supported by a NIFA Beginning Farmer/Rancher grant, aimed at increasing the success of beginning farmers in terms of profitability, productivity, community engagement, and environmental sustainability. This project includes a range of training, demonstration, and networking activities, as well as educational materials on the Start Farming website. The other project, funded by a specialty crop block grant, focuses on tree fruit and vegetable production educational programming for young and Hispanic under-served growers. The project addresses sustainable production, market innovation, and pest management. Details on project objectives and outcomes are provided online.
