Call for Nominations Opens for Young Farmer Accelerator Program
Farm Foundation®, an accelerator of practical solutions for agriculture, is now accepting nominations for the Young Farmer Accelerator program. Nominations for the 2023 cohort will be accepted until February 8.
Started in 2020, the Young Farmer Accelerator Program seeks to actively engage farmers from 21 to 40 years old in a year-long series of interactive learning and networking experiences, focused on gaining a deeper understanding of a wide variety of agriculture, agribusiness, and government issues. The program also hopes to help young farmers build a strong, enduring network of peers and agribusiness and government contacts. Participants are sponsored to attend events, engage in virtual conversations, and participate in exclusive learning opportunities. More information and a link to the nomination for this program are available at farmfoundation.org/young-farmer-accelerator-program.
The full suite of Farm Foundation Next Generation programs have to date engaged nearly 200 promising farmers and agri-business professionals early in their careers, helping them establish critical connections that are nurtured past the current program year through the alumni network.
Nominations are due by February 8, 2023. Participants can be nominated by anyone who knows them well, such as managers, colleagues, community leaders, etc. Participants may also be self-nominated.
