CA Farm Academy trains beginning farmers in all aspects of agricultural production through field work, business planning, classes, and farm visits to give participants a solid foundation in what they need to know to start farming. Topics covered include crop planning, soil, pest management, equipment, marketing, business planning, financing, food safety, and more. At the close of the program each student will have completed a farm business plan.  Additionally, qualified graduates will have the opportunity to join the CFA Incubator Program and lease farmland to help launch their own farming operation.  

CFA is a 7 month program of the Center for Land-Based Learning in Winters, CA, which meets February through September. Class times are designed to accommodate work schedules, with classes meeting Tuesday and Thursday early evenings and two weekends per month.
