The UNL Extension will hold its first Farm Beginnings Program on May 25 at the Lincoln-Logan-McPherson Extension office in North Platte. Sessions run through October.
Participants engage in a mentorship experience and network with a variety of successful, innovative farmers and attend practical seminars, field days and conferences.
Several successful farmers will participate as presenters, explaining first-hand the nuts and bolts of their farming operation. Most of the presenters come from small to medium-sized farming operations, and many direct-market their products.
The cost to participate is $500, and scholarships are available. A brochure, application and contact information are available at http://bit.ly/10nJ0kS.
