Maximize your Alternative Agriculture Goals

There is a growing societal and market-based demand for sustainably grown, specialty and local small farm produced food, goods and services. Success in ownership or management in horticulture, market gardening, or small farming requires a knowledge of plants, soil, greenhouses, machines, accounting, marketing, and working with people. The Horticulture & Small Farm Management ITS provides a firm grounding in plant production, care, and science, which is complemented by both agricultural production and a farm business management education. Maximize your opportunities to create a successful life as a small, specialty or alternative agriculture farm operator through hands-on learning, applied theory, visiting successful operations, and guided experience.
