We SUPPORT beginning Farmers

We create affordable Land Access

Our Incubator Farm Program makes it easier to start farming by supplying equipment, training, resources and land just 3-miles from Ithaca.

We COLLABORATE for Justice & Equity

Through our Farming for Justice Discussion Group, and community events, we partner with organizations led by people of color to address injustices in the food system.

We FOSTER sustainable farming

Our hands-on Workshops highlight techniques that improve soil health, conserve water and promote land regeneration.

We EDUCATE for Success

Our multi-level Programs help farmers increase production yields, explore new enterprises or connect with a mentor.
