Farm Tomorrow is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to preserve, exchange, promote and teach rural and traditional farming practices.
Historically farming knowledge has been passed down on the farm. By being part of or working with a farming family, the knowledge of small scale agriculture and self reliance was passed through generations. This link has been broken with more high tech farming practices and the general move away from agriculture.
In recent years there has been a reawakening of small community based farming through a desire to be self reliant and provide communities with local food. The need for the old knowledge of small self reliant farms has become apparent. A bridge needs to be built to help the farmers who grew up using this sort of knowledge pass it to a new generation of farmers who are seeking it.
Through our programs the knowledge of rural agriculture and self reliance will be retained and exchanged providing economic and educational opportunities for individuals and farms in the region. We hope to inspire care and stewardship for the environment by providing experiences that reconnect people with the agricultural lands that sustain us.
Farm Tomorrow is a 501c3 non- profit organization that focus on rural agricultural skills. Through hands-on learning programs we are teaching and preserving skills from our rural heritage. We have a focus on horse based farming practices and techniques. We believe it is important to preserve this knowledge through use and practice.
Many of our programs are centered around all aspects of horse based farming, from demonstrations that raise the general publics awareness of the continued use and application of horse power to clinics which introduce and further students working knowledge of horses. We also are interested in preserving other rural skills. These classes include subjects from timber framing, canning and preserving the harvest, cheese making, to fibers, butchering skills and making maple syrup.
