"The project addresses four barriers during each of four learning stages for beginning farmers on their path from entering farming to a viable farm enterprise. The four learning stages are -- 1: Prospective (recruitment stage); 2: Farmers-in-Training (formal study and gaining hands-on experience); 3: Farm Start-up or Transition; and 4: Growing the Farm (the first five years after farm start-up). " This project uses field days, Whole Farm workshops, and face-to-face Stateline Farm Beginnings sessions as part of its program.
