2015 Mentorship Programs Off to a Great Start

FAW Beekeeping Mentorship

Mentees in our on-farm mentorship programs have all been out in the field recently, with the kick-off of our 2015 mentorship season! 

So far in the last month, we've held field days for the returning Beekeeping and Sheep Farming Mentorship programs, as well as the newly launched Pasture Management Mentorship program. 

These curriculum-based, multi-day programs provide mentees with hands-on training from expert farmer-mentors in a small group setting over the course of the farming season. Each program allows for the efficient transfer of commodity-specifc knowledge in the following areas: 

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