Incubator Farm Models in Local, Regional and National Food Systems

With over 200 incubator farm projects running or in development across the country, there are a multitude of opportunities for connection and cooperation. This session outlines the structure and operation of these projects, and how organizations are building networks of allied programs. Participants will be guided through a tour of existing projects, resources, and opportunities for involvement. They will have the chance to engage with staff from the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project, the Agriculture and Land-Based Training Association and the Center for Land-Based Learning. Discussion will focus on participant questions and how incubator farm projects can be integrated into all levels of the food system.
