Welcome to Clearwater Farm’s Young Agripreneur Program
ClearWater Farm’s Young Agripreneur Program is designed to support young people who wish to prepare themselves for a leadership position in regenerative agriculture, either through running their own (or someone else’s) farm or overseeing marketing operations.
The Program is a multi-year experiential learning opportunity that takes individuals from developing physical skills and basic farming knowledge (year one), through increasingly independent work (years 2-3) with opportunities in years 3-5 to access increasing amounts of land to be farmed for their own account. Following a successful first year, participants gain access to supporting education to provide an intellectual framework for the practical skills they are developing. Interested candidates who already have prior years of sustainable farming experience can apply for second or third-year status in our program, enabling them to access land more quickly. The program can support participants by providing access to a financial stipend, subsidized local housing, shared equipment, and mentorship.
