CWC Beginning Farmer Training Program and Farm Incubator

Central Wyoming College (CWC) recently launched its Beginning Farmer Training Program and Farm Incubator. Through it, fruit and vegetable farmers are provided land and farm infrastructure, technical and financial training, business start-up and marketing support. Located at the 127-acre Alpine Science Institute outside Lander, the farm incubator is on the site of a former University of Wyoming ag experiment station that contains a late 1800s heritage fruit orchard. Join CWC’s 2021 cohort of beginning farmers and faculty via Zoom virtual session to learn about the farm incubator (including a video tour), hear from the students about what it’s like to start their farm businesses, and know what CWC offers for community classes and for-credit courses for small- to mid-scale farmers.
