Farm Savvy Manual

Development of the Farm Savvy manual has been another major Center activity. The 200 page manual outlines a process for the transition of a farm business to the succeeding generation. It's intended to be used by vocational agriculture teachers, community college instructors, and extension staff to present programs for new farmers or those who wish to transfer a farming operation to another person. The manual is available for $85 from the Beginning Farmer Center.
