Forest Incomes for the Small Farm


This course is designed as a broad overview of forest-related farming curriculum where students will delve in to the details of generating a secondary income from their non-arable farmlands. Topics will include Woodland Agritainment, Maple Syrup and Christmas Tree Production, as well as wild edibles (fungi, fiddleheads, ginseng, game etc.). Importantly the course will focus on the financial risks, rewards, and investments necessary to provide financial sustainability to a small farming business. This course will involve a significant final project where students will develop a business model/proposal suitable for presentation to a financier.
