Complimentary support for farmers
- We provide ongoing feedback and technical assistance for farmers on their business and production plans, and provide help ordering seeds and equipment, getting permits and insurance, keeping records, and accessing credit.
- You can farm on the New Entry Incubator Farm for up to three seasons. After that, we will assist you in transitioning to your own independent farm site.
- If you choose to farm elsewhere, we can help you locate and evaluate farmland.
- What you grow on the New Entry sites belongs to you! You can sell it through the World PEAS Food Hub, or through any other markets that you've identified.
