Come to the Beginning Farmer Network of Massachusetts (BFN/Mass) Fall Forum. This kick-off networking event will be a chance to meet other farmers, farm service providers, and engaged food system advocates who are concerned with beginning farmers’ livelihood and success in the Commonwealth. We’ll get a chance to meet each other, talk about hot-button issues, make action plans, and figure out where we can leverage our resources.
The Beginning Farmer Network of Massachusetts (BFN/Mass) is a collaborative group of farmers and farm service providers dedicated to beginning farmer success in Massachusetts. By creating more space for networking and collaboration amongst Beginning Farmers and Service Providers we hope to bring together people who want to work on similar issues, who want to share information and lessons learned, and who can inspire each other by the work they are already doing.
The New Entry Sustainable Farming Project is coordinating BFN/Mass with help from the many project partners. Financial support is provided from the USDA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Project Grant, #2010-49400-21765.
