All courses are taught by Cornell Cooperative Extension educators, farmers or other ag service providers, and typically include presentations by successful farmers detailing aspects of their operations.
These six-week courses each cost $200. Registration closes when the courses fill up, or by one week before the course start date, whichever happens sooner. Visit nebeginningfarmers.org/online-courses to register.
