Monthly Newsletter

We love providing you with information on what's available to new and beginning farmers in the state and talking through some of the issues that you may be facing on the farm.  Based on the success of out listserv (you can join here!), we've decided to compile much of the information that we send out into one dense, helpful, newsletter each month.  To read the current newsletter, or to see past editions, read on below and find the information that is most helpful to you!

And of course, if you want to receive these on the 2nd Thursday of the Month in your inbox Subscribe to our listserv here: solidground.extension.uconn.edu/emailsignup/
