The New CT Farmer Alliance is a statewide network of farmers and growers. By bringing young, new and emerging farmers together it is our intent to identify and help develop support systems to nurture a successful and diverse agricultural landscape for our state.

We are an all volunteer network. All you have to do to be a part of it is show up, speak up, share, and make friends!

FARMER CIRLCES

Starting in 2021, we're partnering with CT NOFA and UConn Extension's Solid Ground program to launch a learning opportunity for beginner and advanced beginner farmers called "Farmer Circles."

Farmer Circles are peer-to-peer learning communities for farmers interested in sharing obstacles and strategies in a small, semi-structured, supportive environment.

 

Each project year, farmers will join a circle focused on a topic or issue that interests them and explore this topic together.
