Midwest GRIT is Seeking Farmers for its 2023 Cohort!
 
Join fellow agricultural entrepreneurs in the Upper Midwest in a paid peer-to-peer learning experience beginning April 2023! Midwest GRIT (Grains Resource & Immersive Training) was developed to support food-grade grain farmers and their contributions to a resilient regional grainshed!
 
Midwest GRIT is a compensated yearlong training program built on a foundation of peer-to-peer knowledge sharing. Farmers will support each other to gain new knowledge of organic food-grade grain production and marketing, while also developing and/or strengthening mentoring skills that will benefit their communities beyond the length and scope of this program and each individual cohort. Educational programming will provide tools, hands-on education, and networking opportunities to establish or expand on each participants’ existing agricultural enterprises and experience.
