Brickyard Educational Farm’s Incubator Program
Recognizing the need for new farmers, Brickyard has created the framework for a beginning farmer incubator program we hope to implement in 2015. It would provide the essential foundations that are so often out of reach for new farmers, including access to land and costly equipment, as well as finding a viable market.
Taking place within an existing farm, the incubator program would supply beginning farmers with land, shared equipment and business strategy advice. It is designed for new farmers with some previous experience but who lack the resources to start their own farm. The program would allow these new farmers to practice managing their own operation with minimal financial risk, affording them time to save start-up capital for their future independent farm.
