CRAFT Tours 

WV CRAFT (Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training) is a nationally recognized, farmer-led, peer-to-peer learning program that offers young, beginning, and experienced farmers an opportunity to participate in farm tours and roundtable discussions across the state to learn about specific topics and issues, connect with other farmers, and enjoy a delicious potluck meal. However, due to COVID-19, the 2020 farm tours were virtual! Although we missed being able to host them in person, we were thrilled to be able to share them to a larger audience and you can view them whenever you wish! In addition to the virtual tours, we held live question and answer sessions on Facebook Live, which you can find in a playlist here.

This project was supported by the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program, project ONE19-342
