“Field Journal: A Beginners Guide for Young Farmers,” Available for Free Download

The Northeast Beginning Farmer Project and The Greenhorns have released the beautifully illustrated, full-color Field Journal: A Beginners Guide for Young Farmers for free download. The guide details the history and future of American agriculture, information on learning to farm, starting a farm, going to market, and a multitude of resources from funding opportunities to land access to business education for aspiring farmers.

Field Journal is both a basic primer for the future farmer and detailed guide for the serious grower. Woven throughout the pragmatic resources and information are “Stories from the Field,” first-hand accounts and advice from young farmers across the country and a section for your own notes, inspiration, ideas and planning.

    Thanks for sharing this guide. The world definitely needs more small farms & farmers and it seems there are lots of agri-preneurial opportunities for those willing to try.
