Good Farming

Our Good Farming initiative supports sustainable agriculture and is designed to grow and connect our local food system by training new farmers, supporting existing farm businesses and educating consumers. In addition to the programs below, we provide consulting services for private companies, municipal government, and anchor institutions to cultivate local farms and fill gaps in economic development activities.
Good Farming work includes:

Farm Apprenticeship Program

Aspiring farmers and food system leaders are provided foundational knowledge and experiential training through hands on farm work, farm development projects, and field expert-led workshops.

Good Farming E-Newsletter and Farm Support

We believe both farmers and consumers thrive when informed and connected. Sign up to receive a monthly newsletter in your inbox and stay informed of regional ag news and opportunities.

Eat Local Month

Eat Local Month is our annual effort (April) to focus attention on local growers, fishermen and restaurants and includes our annual Chef’s Potluck.
