MSU Student Organic Farm 2014 Organic Farmer Training Program

The Organic Farmer Training Program offers nine months of intensive instruction in year-round organic farming. The program focuses on diversified production of vegetables, livestock, flowers, fruits and herbs for local markets.  Participants manage all aspects of a 15-acre certified organic farm, including passive solar greenhouses used for year-round production in cold climates. Participants also manage the Student Organic Farm's field and hoophouse production. Produce is grown for the farm’s primary markets, including a 48-week CSA, seven-month on-campus farm stand, and sales to campus dining services.  

Scholarships are available.  Visit their website for full program description and application:  http://msuorganicfarm.org/organic-farmer-training-program. The farm may be contacted at msufarm@msu.edu or 517-230-7987.
