The 2008 Farm Bill appropriated funds to develop and offer education, training, outreach and mentoring programs to enhance the sustainability of the next generation of farmers through the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (BFRDP). Educational and other materials produced by BFRDP are housed on the Start2Farm website.
