Welcome to the Business Mentorship Network Webinar Series!

Whether you need business basics or strategic planning for long-term growth, Young Agrarians knows that gaining business development skills is one of the biggest challenges facing new farmers. Our aim is to provide you with an opportunity to build your business knowledge and use it to grow your farm operations and achieve long-term viability.

This platform houses the content for the BMN Webinar Series,  offered to support you to establish a strong business foundation for your farm. All BMN applicants are invited to join us for the BMN Webinar Series on days of the week beginning November DATE through to January DATE.

These will be a combination of pre-recorded content sessions that you can view in advance, plus a live follow-up Question and Answer session. The eight pre-recorded sessions are found on this course webpage and cover farm business basics, financial and risk management and marketing topics. The live Q&A sessions are participatory, and will be driven by your unique questions and interests!

We sincerely hope that by participating in this learning and networking opportunity you will be supported to success in your farm business. We are super excited to offer you this content and have you join us in the network and look forward to supporting your success!

If you receive a Mentor match you will be invited to participate in additional aspects of the BMN Program and more information is found in the “Overview for Mentee” Module.

If you have any questions please reach out to your provincial BMN Coordinator.

Yay Farmers!
