CPA Incubator Farm Now Accepting Applications
The Rural Action Incubator Farm application is open for the 2020 growing season! The Incubator Farm program helps beginning farmers start their own sustainable farm businesses from the ground up — providing farm plots, educational resources, startup capital, and mentorship. This program is designed for individuals who are serious about starting their own sustainable farm and can participate in this program for 1 to 3 years to get their business off the ground. A basic knowledge of farming principles prior to entering the program is strongly recommended. The program is free to participants, thanks to funding by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.
The program provides:
- ⅛ or ¼ acre plot on the Incubator Farm (located at 8380 Wagoner Road, Chesterhill, Ohio 43728)
- Marketing and business planning assistance
- Basic field preparation
- $250 equipment stipend for maintenance and small tools
