The Sustainable Food Production program at MState
The Sustainable Food Production program at MState is a one year diploma program focused on educating and training people from all walks of life for the rapidly growing local food movement. A hands on and practical literature approach in learning diverse farm skills, value-added enterprises, domestic arts, business management, and agro-ecology.
After a crash course in a very complex world of food, students spend 180 hrs interning and apprenticing with local farmers and community organizations. Students from the first year of SFP are now working with Stone Bridge Beef, Seven Pines grass farm, The Farm on St. Mathias, Ellison's grass farm, The Sustainable Farm Association, and The White Earth Land Recovery Project.
