Thank you for your interest in our mentorship program for farms seeking to improve or expand their operation. The OEFFA Mentoring Program exists to serve early career farmers (3-9 years) who either currently operate or manage a farm business or who have prior experience doing so. Please complete this application to submit your interest in becoming a mentee.
Applications are received and reviewed annually in the fall. As mentoring relationships are made in response to the specific needs and interests of mentees and the available mentors, a mentoring opportunity is not guaranteed.
Typically, but not always, mentoring matches are made December-February. The Begin Farming Program Coordinator will be in periodic communication to clarify the likelihood that a mentoring match will be available for consideration.
