You’re invited to a virtual business support and brainstorming session presented by Young Agrarians and Basin Business Advisors.
This is the ninth event of the Young Agrarians 2021 Farm Club event series. What is a Farm Club? A Farm Club is when farmers come together to connect and nerd out with other farmers on farming-related topics. It’s a great way to get to know other farmers and foodies, and build community.
The goal of this virtual support session is to provide farmers an opportunity to bring up their farm and business-related questions to the Basin Business Advisors Agricultural Specialist, Nyree Marsh, and the Columbia Basin Land Matcher, Hailey Troock, who works with land seeking farmers to connect them with relevant and timely business resources and support.
This workshop is suitable for any enterprising farmer or future farmer with questions about the biz! The presenters are based in the Columbia Basin, but farmers anywhere are welcome to join. Participants will hear from both from the facilitators’ experiences and from others in the Zoom room looking to farm or currently farming.
Don’t miss out on this online educational and networking opportunity!
