NCAT Accepting Applications for Incubator Farm Plots in Arkansas

The National Center for Appropriate Technology’s (NCAT) Woolsey Farm Project is accepting applications for incubator farm plots in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Spearheaded by NCAT Southeast’s Luke Freeman, the Woolsey Farm Project is a collaboration between NCAT, Cobblestone Farms, and the City of Fayetteville. The project aims to provide beginning farmers with access to land so they can establish and grow their farm businesses. Each incubator farmer accepted in 2019 will have access to a quarter-acre plot and shared equipment at Cobblestone Farm. This program is targeted towards beginning farmers who have several years of production experience, but do not have access to land to start their own farm business. Applicants should have a solid idea of their business goals and their production strategy for a quarter-acre plot. The application deadline is February 1, 2019.
