Incubator Farms: Start your farm without taking on lots of debt

Posted by Jordan Marr on February 04, 2016

Incubator Farms provide land, tools, and guidance at a reasonable price to aspiring farmers, allowing them to reduce the risks inherent in starting a farm business from scratch. They’re popping up all over North America. In this episode of The Ruminant Podcast, Jordan Marr speaks with an incubator farm coordinator and two incubator farmers about how these programs are structured, and the pros and cons of getting into farming via an incubator. 

The incubator farms we discuss are the Elma C. Lomax Incubator in Concord, NC, and le Plate-forme Agricole de l’Ange-Gardien in Quebec.
