Are you ready to begin farming and need some assistance in doing so?

Are you a small-scale farmer looking for opportunities to be more economically viable and connect with other farmers?

The WI Emerging Farmers Program at UW-Extension Milwaukee County seeks to train and equip the next generation of farmers through:

  • Affordable land access
  • Community workshops taught by regional experts
  • Facilitating selling partnerships with local restaurants and retailers
  • Building local food system infrastructure, such as distribution hubs and local food processing
  • Mobilizing farmers to access and share resources such as roto-tillers, soil amendments and packaging

If any of these opportunities sound helpful and you wish to learn more or be involved, please contact Ryan Schone, local foods educator at ryan.schone@ces.uwex.edu or 414-256-4653.

The number of participants and land access is limited – please contact us soon!
