Exploring the New Farm Dream – NEW DATES & LOCATIONS

Is starting an agricultural business right for me?

Are you interested in starting a small farm business, but unsure  where to begin? 

Then this course is for you!

For career changers  looking for a new start,  farm apprentices considering a start-up, or  those simply interested in a hobby with  profit potential, Exploring the  New Farm Dream is intended to bridge the gap between ideas and action.

By providing information on what is required to start and manage a  profitable agricultural business, this course will help aspiring farmers  decide whether farming is a path they want to pursue.  A facilitator  will guide course participants through four interactive sessions  featuring panel discussions with successful farmers, government and  industry representatives, and other guest speakers.

THINKFARM will be offering this course in 2014 in Bible Hill and Antigonish on Thursday, January 9, 16, 23, and 30. [Note that for Bible Hill this is a postponement of the course advertised for November 2013.]

The course will also be offered in Kentville on Tuesday, February 4, 11, 18 and 25.
