FARMER INCUBATOR PROGRAM
The Fauquier Education Farm Incubator Program is intended to offer real-world experience with small scale farming to individuals who are ready to start commercial vegetable or cut flower production but do not own land and equipment. In addition to land access these new farmers would have access to technical and training support from the Education Farm Director and limited equipment use. The goal is to enable these new farmers to establish experience and credibility that they can use in seeking other land leasing or purchase options. A further goal is to help these individuals make more fully informed decisions about their commercial farming plans.
This program is not intended for individuals seeking a home garden for themselves. Instead it is for individuals with a commercial farming intent. Any profits that will be generated through this incubator project will belong to the new farmer.
