In the Organic Farm Incubator farmers launch and grow their businesses over four years, learning all aspects of running a farm enterprise under ALBA’s supervision and in a reduced-risk environment. In any given year, ALBA hosts 35+ farmers, who receive subsidized access to land, equipment and technical assistance as they prepare for their transition to independent farming. Farmers start on 1/2 acre and gradually expand to 5 acres as their abilities allow.
