BFTP Graduates

“This program was crucial in getting me started as a farmer in Baltimore. It created a community for me, where I found support, inspiration, and learning. It gave my partner the confidence to farm as well. I'm so lucky I found the program and I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to start a farm business!”          —Laura Beth Resnick, Butterbee Farm

“This is a well-rounded program that provides classroom knowledge, farm tours, and invaluable hands on experience. The program gives you access to many resources, ideas, and connections that you can draw on for your entire farming career.”  —Tamara Todd, Wild Peace Farm

By the end of 2017, our Beginner Farmer Training Program will have graduated nearly 170 new farmers in the Chesapeake region. Here are just some of our amazing graduates—please check out and support their farms!
