Mentorship Programs

On-farm Mentorships

FAW Mentorships are curriculum-based, multi-day training programs in which expert farmers and trainers work with small groups of mentees throughout a farming season. Each program allows for the efficient transfer of commodity-specific knowledge in the following areas: 

  • On-farm production systems
  • Practical skills and techniques
  • Business planning
  • Financial management
