Want to become a farmer? Or are you already a farmer, but interesting in transitioning to sustainable production of specialty crops or produce for the local market? Two North Carolina Cooperative Extension farm schools are designed to help you learn effective production methods, business planning, financial management, marketing strategies and more.

Both schools — the nationally recognized, award-winning Piedmont Farm School and the brand new Sandhills Farm School both start in February. In addition to classes, the schools include field trips to working farms led by innovative experienced farmers and agricultural professionals.

Register by Dec. 31.
