Catalyze your learning curve with a farm mentor

Learning to grow, harvest, and sell crops can create an intimidating learning curve for new farmers. This is where mistakes are made and technical problems inevitably crop up to test your resolve as a new farmer.

Wise farmers understand that the learning curve is a natural part of learning any new skill, but also know that the learning curve can be shortened with a good mentor or advisor.



A great mentor can help with big picture questions like target markets, technical requirements, and shipping. They can also address smaller, more personal concerns, like managing time or money. That’s not to mention all of the little tips, tricks, and hacks you’ll pick up from your mentor.

In short, the right farm mentor can help cover the gaps in your personal experience in a way that helps save you time and money!

The learning curve is real! Shorten the curve by finding the right mentor.

Click here for a bunch of tips from Upstart University on how to find a good mentor!
