Our Mentorship program pairs beginning and experienced farmers. Why? In the Fall of 2021, we surveyed farmers ahead of our organizational launch. When we asked about what programs or events farmers wanted (field days, an apprenticeship program, etc.), the #1 thing that farmers asked for was a mentorship program. We listened and we're pleased to say we've begun our second round of this great program..
Thanks to grant support from the Indiana State Department of Agriculture, PIFF and the Hoosier Young Farmers Coalition are piloting a mentorship program in 2023 and 2024.
