Farm Aid's Farmer Resource Network

The Farmer Resource Network connects you to more than 400 organizations developing innovative approaches to producing, processing and marketing food from family farms. We're here to share our stories about successful farm operations and connect you to people with ideas to diversify and strengthen your farm.

This tool allows you to search for farmer resources by location, subject (like "new farmer support") and type of farm.

My partner and I started our farm business this spring (Broadfork Farm www.broadforkfarm.com). We had both been working on farms (me for the past 6 years, him for the past 3 years) and finally decided to start our own. We took a farm business planning course which was REALLY helpful (Farmers Growing Farmers through Everdale www.everdale.org). We hadn't realized how little we knew about running a business. I highly recommend aspiring farmers learn as much as possible about running a business.

If anyone around the southwest Wisconsin area would like to help out the cause let us know!! We're always looking for willing volunteers, and it's a great learning experience. We are a WWOOF farm but just putting us out there any way we can!  :)

I'm a rookie to this site.  Would love to know if there is a volunteer site, by state, city, etc.  Would love to work, volunteer in the Orange Co. or Los Angeles area.  Or if anyone has any suggestions.
