New Farmer Academy

The New Farmer Academy is a seven-month certificate program designed for those with an interest in becoming agricultural entrepreneurs. Ideal candidates for this program include those who are new to agriculture, those who wish to transition into agriculture from another field such as military service or private sector work, or those who are looking for a post-retirement opportunity.

The program focuses on teaching concepts, providing information, and facilitating the hands-on experience and connections needed to build a solid, viable, and successful agricultural business. There are two academies offered in Tennessee – the Tennessee New Farmer Academy in Middle Tennessee and the East Tennessee New Farmer Academy based out of Morgan County.
