Part of Moore County’s charm is its long history of being an agricultural society. There’s a sense of community and a strong connection to the land. This draws many people to settle down here and begin homesteading or farming commercially. With such a growing interest in farming, our office has begun holding New Farmer Meetups. A group of people sitting in a circle having a discussion.

These meetups are a chance for folks that are just getting started or are still in the beginning stages of their farm dream to connect and learn from each other. The group currently includes over 100 people who are at different stages in starting their farm, have varying backgrounds, and a range of long-term goals for their farm.

Two people look at growing plants.As time has gone on, we have incorporated educational programs into the meetups. We’ve covered topics like multi-species grazing, cover cropping, and cider production as a value added product.

A group of people stand around a person giving a talk from a trailer.

The people in the group also receive notifications about upcoming workshops, cost-share programs and grant opportunities available through other agencies, openings at farmers markets and local farm cooperatives, and more.

Are you interested in joining the group?

Please fill out this short form, so that we can make sure you are added to our email list and that the right agriculture agent reaches out to you.

How can we help?

We are educators, facilitators, and connection makers, and we’re here to help. Meet the agriculture agents in Moore County.

When you ask the question “how do I start farming?”, your local N.C. Cooperative Extension office is an excellent place to begin.
