Not only will you learn about our 2020 plans for marketing and engagement, you'll hear it directly from our partners including Produce Perks and The Wonder Jam. Hear about the work we're doing, what's to come and how you can engage and participate. We've also added an update on COVID-19 and our efforts to support and advocate for you - our farmers and food producers.

Are you an aspiring or new farmer planning your dream farm?

OEFFA's popular half-day Farm Vision workshop is headed online this year!

It can help you map out your farm vision, clarify your goals and values, and assess your strengths, resources, and needs before beginning a farming enterprise.

Using a combination of farmer virtual presentations, individual skill assessments and vision exercises, and breakout discussions, find out if you are ready to begin farming and leave with an action plan toward developing your farm dreams.

A panel of mid-career farmers will reflect on their beginnings with plenty of time for questions and answers. In addition to learning from the successes and challenges of these farmers, this interactive workshop will provide you with the tools to help you get started, including:

- Assessment of the rewards and risks of starting a new farm business
- Farm mapping and enterprise brainstorming
- Farming and business skills assessment
- Market and revenue potential evaluation
- Action plan for starting your business

This event will be held via Zoom webinar software. It will work best for those who can join by computer. Once you register, we will send you a link for joining the webinar.

Cost: $20 for non-members, $15 for OEFFA members. Use promotional code MembersSave2020 for the 25 percent member discount. Scholarships are available for those for whom this registration fee is a hardship; contact Rachel.
