The Incubator Farm Business Training Program supports beginning culturally marginalized farmers in Louisville as they build successful, independent farm businesses. In partnership with Jefferson County Cooperative Extension, the three-year program aims to support farmers’ business and crop production skills through educational opportunities, technical support, and connections with other farmers.
The Incubator Farm site at 3130 Millers Lane is a place where farmers without land can begin building their businesses. After farmers graduate from the three year program, Common Earth Gardens supports their search for expanded land access. Read more about connecting beginning farmers with land opportunities, and how community members can get involved, here.
Applications to join the program are available at an Informational Meeting each January. An application and in-person interview are required to be considered for the farm program and to have a plot. Interpretation is available.
