About: Join Heifer USA and New South Produce Cooperative for this very special farm training event at Whitton Farms in Northeast Arkansas with owners & operators, Jill & Keith Forrester! Now in their 16th year of farming, participants will learn from their wealth of knowledge and hear about their journey from teachers turned farmers to being recognized as the Farm Family of the Year for Northeast Arkansas.
This event is for those who are currently farming or considering becoming a farmer.
What’s Included: Participants will enjoy a private tour of their lovely farm with 20 acres in specialty crop production, learn from their success (and failures!), engage in question answer sessions, and learn how their relationship with New South Produce Cooperative, which Jill now serves as the board chair for, has benefited their farm!
Attendees will also be treated to lunch at “The Grange” in the beautiful town of Wilson, Arkansas and have the opportunity to explore the Forrester’s latest endeavor partnering with Wilson Gardens! Staff representatives from New South Produce Cooperative will also be in attendance and available to answer any questions about how YOU can become a member!
