Small Farmer Agricultural Leadership Training Session Held in Houston
Baton Rouge, LA - The Southern University Ag Center based Small Farmer Agricultural Leadership Institute, Class IV held its second training session at Prairie View A&M University in Houston, December 14-17. The group consisting of 31 participants from 12 southern states came together for farm tours and classroom lectures. The first stop was Yonder Way Farm, which began in 2006 when owners Jason and Lynsyn Kramer decided to live out their dreams of owning a farm. Their business goal is to be good stewards of the land and raise their animals free of confinement in a natural environment. Classroom lectures included lessons such as, team building, leadership, diversity training, farming as a business, and creating a resource inventory. In all, 47 individuals attended the event.
