The good folks out at Tilian Farm continue to provide impressive opportunities for budding agriculturalists. In partnership with The Food System Economic Partnership of Michigan and Ann Arbor Township, Tilian Farm presents new farmers with land access, farming equipment, and USDA financing connections. Agricultural mentors assist these green farmers by helping them to create business plans for their local food production futures. Look for Tilian Farm’s Green Things Farm produce at the Wednesday and Saturday farmers’ markets in Kerrytown or take a trip out to the farm to buy directly from the soil-caked hands of Tilian farmers. At-home farmers looking for tips can learn more about organic farming through Tilian Farm’s webinar series–topics range from managing weeds and mold to growing scrumptious blackberries.
