FARM BUSINESS INCUBATOR

Ready to start a farm of your own? We can help.

 

The Seed Farm Farm Business Incubator was created to meet the needs of new farmers that did not grow up on farms and therefore lack access to land, equipment, and capital.

On our 42-acre site, we provide access to land, infrastructure, equipment, and mentoring in order to break down the barriers to farm entry. We can help connect you with service providers, new markets, even promotional opportunities while you build a solid foundation for your farm business.

  • cooler, greenhouse, and dry storage space;

  • tractors and implements;

  • wash/pack facilities;

  • water and irrigation system;

  • mentoring and technical assistance;

  • ongoing training opportunities.
