Young Farmer Accelerator Program
Helping young farmers gain deeper understanding and build strong networks.
The 2023 Young Farmer Accelerator Program Cohort
About the Program
This program seeks to actively engage farmers from 21-40 years old in a yearlong 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 helps 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.
Young Farmers engage in a variety of activities, including: developing working relationships with peers and a senior agribusiness/farmer mentor; attending Farm Foundation Round Table meetings to network and learn from industry leaders; and other unique opportunities for personal and professional development.
In general, the nomination window for the upcoming Young Farmer Accelerator cohort opens in February. Please follow Farm Foundation’s social media channels ( especially LinkedIn and Facebook) for the latest details on upcoming nomination windows.
