In order to supplement the education our farming apprentices receive in our fields and in the classroom, we participate in the Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT), which is a model for sharing complementary farm training in collaboration with participating farms.
Mid-Hudson CRAFT participants visit host farms for a tour, talk or demonstration on a specific topic. These visits to other farms offer farmers-in-training exposure to a number of diverse farm enterprises, as well as opportunities to develop practical skills and network with other farmers and apprentices.
The 2020 CRAFT schedule is being finalized. For reference, you may click here to view the 2019 Mid-Hudson CRAFT Schedule. If you would like to join Mid-Hudson CRAFT, please contact Dave Llewellyn.
