Program Description
Small farmers can benefit from diversification into new agricultural enterprises and alternative production practices so as to improve or sustain farm profitability and environmental stewardship. An agricultural education program has been developed to emphasize new or alternative enterprises, new production and marketing practices, diversification, farm operations, and making use of natural resources.
Through on-farm demonstrations, farm visits, workshops, field days, and group meetings, small farmers are taught to:
  1. Utilize new skills and processes to evaluate the production and market potential of alternative agricultural products
  2. Improve resource utilization and profitability while minimizing environmental impacts through adoption of alternative production systems utilizing new and existing technologies and management practices
  3. Increase profitability by using currently recommended practices that are both cost-effective and environmentally sound.
