Program Description
The University of Nebraska - Lincoln Extension is targeting small-scale and part-time farming needs.

A sample of programs in this area includes a Rural Advantage Conference which is held jointly with the Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society. It is a two day conference held at locations thorough out Eastern Nebraska emphasizing alternative agriculture, direct marketing opportunities, and other information. Farm BeginningsTM is a program designed to encourage and help new farmers begin their operation. Acreage Answers is a combination of workshops and newsletters designed specifically for acreage owners around the metropolitan areas of Nebraska. The Nebraska Farm Cooperative is a program originating from UNL to bring producers and consumers together in a direct marketing program.

In addition, Small/Part Time farming funding is being used to support private organizations such as the CropsinNebraska program which is a program for ethnic minorities in Lincoln to return to agriculture through gardening. The Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society is being provided funding for a number of programs including the development of a videotape on small and part time farming opportunities in Nebraska.

Our program emphasis includes working with both public and private individuals and groups to provide help to small and part-time farming operators.
