Emerging farmer program
The Emerging Farmer Program assists 10 newer farms in becoming, or remaining, financially stable by offering education, networking, and resources. The program is meant to bring local farmers together for networking and educational opportunities and to connect farmers to our Food Hub for potential sales through wholesale and to the Mobile Market.
If you are a farmer in Southeastern North Carolina and would like to get involved in the program, please contact Zach at 910-524-0165 or send him an email.
