The Profitable Small Farms program is designed to provide students with the know-how to first develop and then successfully sustain a small farm. Project-based entrepreneurial courses prepare students for the real world and provide strategies and documents for the students' immediate use upon graduating from the program.
The program maintains strong ties with the local farming community, food businesses, and university extension service, which helps students in internship and job placement.
