There will be three face-to-face sessions and two online webinars to assist attendees with their plans and allow networking opportunities with other students in the class. These sessions will provide more details covering the planning process, crop planting plans, marketing, risk management, and financing.

Upon registration in this class, you will receive a welcome email from the course instructor with further information. Additionally, each week thereafter (9 weeks) you will receive an email that includes the link to the week’s recorded webinar and supplementary online resources.

Through use of an electronic survey, questions can be asked of the instructor at any time. All participants will receive a copy of the Your Future in Focus text and additional handouts via USPS. Click on the “Your Future in Focus Text” section for a brief overview of the book’s contents.

Students will use the University of Minnesota Ag Plan site to create a business plan and Penn State Extension instructors will review, respond and provide support as the business “game plan” takes shape.
