Mid-Hudson CRAFT

In order to supplement the education our farming apprentices receive in our fields and in the classroom, we participate in the Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT), which is a cooperative model for sharing complementary farm training in collaboration with participating farms.

The Mid-Hudson CRAFT program is based on the Western Massachusetts/Eastern New York CRAFT program that was initiated in 1994. Participants visit host farms for a tour, talk or demonstration on a specific topic. These visits to other farms offer farmers-in-training exposure to a number of diverse farm enterprises, as well as opportunities to develop practical skills and network with other farmers and apprentices.
