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
Check out this article in Inside Belleville to read what our mentees had to say about the programs we offer: "New mentoring program teaches the essentials of maple syrup production".
