New beginning farmer fellowship seeks applicants

Last fall we were contacted by Tim Gaudreau, a NH farmer and eco-artist, about a new Beginning Farmer Fellowship at the newly established Willow Brook Farm and Art Center (WBFAC). In addition to access to land and housing, the fellowship provides equipment, training and mentorship. Tim was inspired in part by Land For Good to acquire land and promote farming opportunity. Read the WBFAC ‘backstory’ of how Tim came to make land available to new farmers..

The Fellowship

Willow Brook Farm, a 76-acre nonprofit homestead located in central NH, has an open call for the second round of its Beginning Farmer Fellowship. The two-year fellowship includes access to land, housing, a modest stipend, equipment, tools, mentorship and training. Tim says, “Our Beginning Farmer Fellowship is a unique opportunity for beginning farmers in NH to propose and explore their own farming practice and business idea in a low risk environment of support, mentorship, and collaboration.”
