Emerging Farmer Office
Active dates:2021 -
The Emerging Farmer Office, led by the Emerging Farmer Outreach Coordinator, must engage and support emerging farmers regarding resources and opportunities available throughout the Department of Agriculture and the state.
Appropriations for this office were first proposed in the 2021 regular session in HF2298/SF2228. The provisions did not pass in the regular session but did pass in the 2021 1st special session.
The creation of this office follows a report from the Emerging Farmers Working Group, which recommended that the Legislature "fund a dedicated position for community engagement within the [Minnesota Department of Agriculture]."
