    The Seed Farm is cultivating the next generation of farmers

    Since 2010, The Seed Farm has worked to cultivate the next generation of farmers by providing training opportunities, access to land and equipment, and business start-up assistance on a 42-acre site located on Lenape land in Emmaus. Aspiring farmers can launch their own sustainable farm businesses through the Farm Business Incubator or learn to farm through New Farmer Training. The Seed Farm provides access to land, infrastructure, equipment, and mentoring in order to break down the barriers to farm entry. This growing season will be the largest yet, with nine farmers launching their businesses at The Seed Farm.

     

    In addition to programming, The Seed Farm’s annual Spring Plant Sale and Farm to Fork fundraiser are much-anticipated events that bring together foodies, farmers, and gardeners in support of a shared goal: ensuring the future of agriculture.
