As part of the USDA BFRDP grant we received in 2014, we are developing a new statewide resource for beginning farmers and ranchers across Montana: FarmLink!
- Information on available resources
- New resources on business planning, financing, legal issues, land access, and more
- A map-based tool (including online application functionality) to connect beginning farmers with internship, mentorship, and land lease/purchase opportunities
Before we launch the site, we would love your feedback to make the site work as well as possible for you and your needs!
If you’re a farmer or landowner and think you might use this resource to:
- List internship opportunities
- Offer mentorship or support to beginning farmers
- Offer land for lease or sale to beginning/expanding farmers
If you’re a beginning farmer (from pre-startup to first few years farming):
- Looking for internships
- Interested in mentorship
- Seeking land to buy/lease for farming
And please! Share this post with people from around the state who might be interested in helping us build a great new resource for Montana!
