The Beginning Farmers Network was created to provide a peer group for students who plan to enter into farming. It is a network because we maintain contact with members who are farming through our annual conference the first Saturday in February. This conference allows beginning farmers the opportunity to sharpen their skills through networking as well as learn from excellent speakers. Monthly meeting include an informative speaker with relevance to real world production agriculture.
This organization has no affiliations.
