We encourage anyone who is interested in starting a farm business and has some agricultural experience to apply. We are seeking incubator farmers who will be successful and add to the diversity of local farmers, products, and marketing strategies. All types of farm businesses that fit the five-year program model will be considered. This includes but is not limited to: mixed vegetables, livestock (especially small animals), seeds, flowers, berries, herbs, and bees. The only product excluded from production at Headwaters Farm is cannabis.
All applicants will receive detailed feedback on their farm plans and additional suggested resources which may help them achieve their farm goals.
