About

The goal of the GrowinG Beginning Farmers and Ranchers in Wyoming program is to provide education, mentoring, and technical assistance to offer beginning farmers and ranchers the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to make informed decisions for their operations and enhance their sustainability.

The project looks to ensure Wyoming beginning producers are well-informed of risk management alternatives to allow them to take full advantage of existing insurance products and other risk controls by offering training and resources covering various financial management, risk management, enterprise assessment, and risk analysis topics.

Goals of the internship program are to provide hands-on internships on working farms and ranches to Wyoming’s beginning farmers and ranchers each year in cooperation with state producer organizations and educational institutions.

Each internship offers a beginning farmer or rancher the educational opportunity to learn hands on the demands this area of agriculture holds in the state of Wyoming. We pay $5,000 per internship directly to the intern. Our goal for UW Giving Day is to be able to fund five interns!

Thank you for supporting the future of farming and ranching in Wyoming!
