Penn State Extension

The course covers a wide array of agricultural principles

Penn State Extension is offering a new online course, Starting a Farm: Is Farming Right for You?, for individuals looking for a second career, seeking to turn a hobby into a business, or developing a business idea.

The course covers a wide array of agricultural principles that will lay groundwork in developing a feasibility study to evaluate the development of a successful farm or agricultural business. These topics include how to evaluate your personal, financial, and physical resources; perform market research to determine if “your dream” is possible; and refine and define business goals.

Participants will earn a certificate of completion upon passing the course.

For the month of August, this course will be offered at a 50 percent discounted rate. To learn more and register, visit the Penn State Extension website.
