MOSES and Renewing the Countryside are excited to partner with Practical Farmers of Iowa to bring New Farmer U to Iowa!

New Farmer U kicks off Friday night with beginning farmer networking opportunities, and goes through Saturday and Sunday. The weekend training includes your choice of 90-minute hands-on workshops and round table discussions, as well as local and organic food, dorm-style lodging, and social networking fun. Saturday’s general session includes a panel of regional farmers in their first ten years of farming answering the question, “What would you do differently and keep the same in your first five years?” New Farmer U events also include an exhibit hall of helpful folks with resources and relevant information for beginning farmers.

Check out the agenda, workshops and presenters below:
