NOFA Vermont’s Journey Farmer program is a two year program for beginning farmers who are in the first few years of running their own farming enterprise in Vermont. The program provides resources and opportunities for aspiring new farmers to increase their knowledge base and continue developing the skills they need to farm successfully. The program offers a range of services and benefits, including connecting Journey Farmers with a farmer mentor, a $500 educational stipend, free admission to NOFA Vermont workshops and conferences, business planning support, and technical assistance from NOFA Vermont staff. In addition, Journey Farmers become part of a learning community of other aspiring farmers and farmer mentors. For more information or to apply, please visit the NOFA website by clicking here  or contact Caitlin Jenness at caitlinjenness@nofavt.org or 434-4122 x28.  

The Journey Farmer Program was started in 2011 with funding from the Vermont Agency of Agriculture Agricultural Innovation Center, and is currently supported by the USDA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program.
