Farm Business Education Program

The GA FarmLink Farm Business Education Program aims to enable Georgia farmers to strengthen the foundations of their farm businesses and increase their receipt of federal funding in order to ensure long-term resilience and sustainable profits.

Beginning in February of 2024, over the course of four years 30 Georgia farmers (six per 10-month session) will be guided by a team of professional consultants through a farm business curriculum that focuses on topics such as basic accounting, systems for data tracking, business & financial analysis, credit readiness, accessing federal programs and planning for growth. The program will also provide farmers opportunities to develop social capital and build a network through peer-to-peer mentoring and yearly on-farm educational events.
