Executive Farm Management Program – Blake Brown
Normally our Executive Farm Management program is a 10-12 day program delivered in 3 in-person sessions in January and February. Due to COVID-19 the 2021 program will be a much shorter “bootcamp” delivered virtually. The target audience for the EFM is large commercial farms. We hope to reach a large number of these farms with our virtual program in 2021 and prepare them for a full EFM in 2022. The 2021 EFM Bootcamp is 3 half-day Zoom sessions from Wednesday, February 10 to Friday, February 12, 2021. The bootcamp will be preceded by 4 webinars each Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. on January 12, 19, 26, and February 2, 2021.
