Organic Farmer Training Program
The OFTP is a unique opportunity for new and beginning farmers seeking intensive instruction in year-round organic production. It is designed to teach both production and management skills in an environment where personalized learning goals and training are emphasized. Students engage in the management of the Student Organic Farm’s production for the farm’s primary markets, including a 48-week CSA, a 7-month on-campus farm stand, and sales to campus dining services.
