Clemson University's South Carolina New and Beginning Farmer Program is accepting applications for 2017-2018. The program provides new and beginning farmers with the tools, knowledge and skills necessary to be successful entrepreneurs, sound business managers, exemplary stewards of the natural environment and successful marketers. Two levels of instruction are offered: "Level I, Exploring Farming as a Business" is for emerging farmers with less than three years of experience and "Level II, Taking Your Farm Business to the Next Level" is for those who have been farming three to nine years. Core agribusiness workshops will be held in Columbia and are focused on farm business management, while regional workshops are held throughout the state. Guided farm tours, access to on-farm internships, and participation in the S.C. New and Beginning Farmer Program Alumni Association are also featured program elements. Applications are due July 15, 2017, with programming beginning in October.
