In August 2016, Kansas Farmers Union, Farmer Veteran Coalition of Kansas, Kansas Beginning Farmers Coalition, Kansas Center for Sustainable Agriculture and Alternative Crops, and Kansas AgrAbility partnered to present the Summer Fun Farm Tour Series.
Along with tours of nine farms-many operated by beginning farmers and military veterans, we also dug into three of the most requested beginning farmer hot topics-farm food safety, grant writing, and business planning-during short, intensive afternoon workshops. Below are resources from the afternoon educational sessions.
The series was made possible through funding from Farm Aid. Learn more about the important work of Farm Aid here! The local foods lunch was generously sponsored by Frontier Farm Credit. Learn more about Farm Credit’s beginning farmer opportunities here.
