Accessing Farm Programs

If you are planning on coming to the "Accessing Farm Programs" Workshop, the last day to register is today.  Please either email or call Lorin Chann, 573-449-3518, to let her know you will be attending.

The "Accessing Farm Programs" Workshop is divided into two sessions. Session 1 will be held October 3rd from 1:00 pm to 7:30 pm. This session is a general overview of government agencies and their programs. The cost for this session is $15/person. Session 2 will be held October 4th from 7:30 am to 1:00 pm. This session begins with a farm tour to see the different types of cost share farm systems followed by a working session on how to develop a plan which is necessary in applying for government farming programs. Assistance from the NRCS (Natural Resource Conservation Service) staff will be on hand to assist you in putting a list together of all the materials you will need when applying for the EQIP (Environmental Quality Incentive Program). The cost for this session is $10/person. You are welcome to attend either one or both of the sessions. Click here for the registration form.
