Exploring the Small Farm Dream

[Tangent, Oregon] OSU Extension Service will be offering the workshop series Exploring the Small Farm Dream starting in January 2019.  The three-part series is aimed towards those who are considering launching a small farm enterprise but are not sure where to start.  Whether you are dreaming of raising sheep, growing berries, or selling heirloom vegetables, this class series will give you the tools to start making choices to determine if farming is right for you. In this course participants will learn about current opportunities in small-scale agriculture, explore objectives, assess personal and financial resources, conduct preliminary market research, and learn about farm business finances which will all feed into an action plan and guide next steps. Participants can expect; creative exercises, research, and class discussions that will help assess their skills and resources.

Classes will be held at the Linn County Extension Office, 33630 McFarland Rd, Tanget OR.  The classes will be held from 5:30pm – 8:00pm on Tuesday January 29th, Thursday February 7th, and Tuesday February 12th 2019.

The tuition for the series is $60 per person or $75 for two partners from the same farm. Space is limited. Registration is required prior to January 22.
