Our vendor Pearson Organics was highlighted by Minnesota Public Radio this morning for her efforts as a new farmer and the work she has done finding land to grow her vegetable business. A resource for new farmers, The Farmland Access Hub, intends to connect beginning farmers with mentors to help navigate issues like lease agreements, buying land, and applying for loans.
