Blog Archives: Mentoring

We have created this blog categorization system as a way to organize and preserve the daily blogs written about our farming life. We hope you find this categorization system helpful.

The following blog entries are all related in some way to the topic of farm mentoring. They may cover any one or more of the following topics:
farm operations training
farm internships
passing the farm to the next generation
connecting with potential teachers and students
evaluating intership risks/benefits
Or they may simply be essays about some other aspect of farm mentoring. We hope you find something useful here, or at least some pleasant reading.

If there is some way we can improve our archiving system, please Contact Us and we'll take your recommendations into consideration.
