Cornell Small Farm Online Courses – Soil Health and more

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Cornell Small Farms Program offers a suite of more than 20 online courses, primarily taught by Cornell Cooperative Extension educators, to help farmers improve their technical and business skills.

  • Interactive 5 to 8-week courses connect you to the information and people you need to start a successful farm business or diversify your farm
  • Led by experienced educators and farmers
  • Most courses can be taken by people anywhere in the world (read the course description to check whether it is targeted to farming in the Northeastern U.S.)

There is a fee for the courses, however, the Cornell Small Farms Program offers partial scholarships, with funding from the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, for military veterans to take our online courses. The courses, normally $250, will be offered to veterans for $125.

The course offerings and schedules can be viewed here. If you are eligible for a partial scholarship and would like to enroll, contact them here.

Registration is limited and will be offered first-come, first-served. Participants will be asked to complete a targeted survey at the end of the course as well as 6 months from completion, to determine the effect on their operation.
