Farmers love working the land, but often need help learning to plan and market their business. A local program is teaching aspiring farmers the business skills they need for success. 

The program, called the Sonoma County Agropreneurship's Beginning Farmer and Rancher Training Program, is looking for aspiring farmers with 1-10 years of experience. The training teaches them to formulate business plans, market products and connects trainees with experienced mentors. 

The deadline for the next round of applications is April 15. Find additional details online.
