This webinar explains insurance options for specialized, diversified, and organic farms, including Adjusted Gross Revenue Lite (AGR-Lite)— a unique type of federally subsided crop insurance that holds great promise to serve the needs of smaller, diverse, specialty crop, organic, and direct-market farmers. While most insurance products are tied to a specific crop or commodity, AGR-Lite is based on whole-farm revenue and allows farmers who grow several specialty crops, high value crops (including organic), or diverse crops and livestock products, to insure their production based on the farm's historic revenue. The webinar will explain how AGR-Lite works, and will also demonstrate NCAT's new AGR-Lite Wizard assessment tool.

A producer applying for organic certification must develop a farm plan. This webinar explains what information producers need to provide when they submit their farm plan to an organic certifying agent. The presenters are Mary Ellen Holliman, Coordinator for Organic Certification with the Texas Department of Agriculture and Skip Connett, owner of Green Gate Farms in Austin, Texas. The webinar is intended mainly for Texas specialty crop growers, but will be of interest to people outside of Texas too. The webinar is one of a series. An earlier webinar, “Organic Certification Basics,” also is available on the ATTRA website. The two webinars complement each other, and we suggest watching both of them, but each one stands on its own and may be viewed alone. Funding for these webinars is pro...
From http://TheHardestYear.com: This still looks like tobacco country. Tractors still slow traffic on the roads. An autumn celebration is still called the "Tobacco Festival." And family farms still have the region's trademark tall barns where the harvest's giant green leaves once cured in the rafters until they were rusty brown and ready for market. But despite decades of tradition, tobacco farming is on the wane in Appalachia. The elimination of government price supports and increased costs of production have prompted many tobacco growers to seek out new crops in order to get by. What some have found may change the face of agriculture in this remote region. See the full story at http://TheHardestYear.com.
Farmers take you through the ins and outs of insurances, taxes, and regulations. They discuss the challenge of needing to be experts in production, marketing, customer relations, bookkeeping, planning, land management, and more. In the Voices of Experience series from the Beginning Farmers Resource Center, you'll find the kind of dirt-under-the-fingernails advice that can only come from someone who's been there. The NY Beginning Farmer Project is led by a team of Cornell Cooperative Extension Educators in partnership with the Cornell Small Farms Program. The project, launched in 2006 in response to increasing interest in farm start-ups, aims to enhance the likelihood of success of new ag enterprises by making the best resources and training available to new and diversifying farmers.
