A place where you can make mistakes only to correct them and avoid them in the future. It’s a trial-and-error environment, under professional guidance, where if you fail on a particular part of your growing process you don’t lose everything. Whereas, outside of the incubator, you may lose that and more.

As agriculture shifts from small family farms to large industrial producers, who will train the next generation of American farmers? Stone Barns is an initiative to grow the next generation of farmers, with an ecological consciousness. The average age of the American Farmer is 57*.

The Growing Farmers Initiative at Stone Barns is designed to increase the number of sustainable small and mid-size farms through internships, workshops and conferences that ...

1) increase technical knowledge of organic and sustainable agriculture production and processing

2) show small farmers how to enhance their operations, build qualified staff, and gain access to land and markets

3) provide opportunities for beginning farmers to build strong networks of personal and professional support.
