Quivira’s New Agrarian Program grew out of the understanding that agriculture drives economies, creates green job opportunities and directly affects the health of our nation. Enthusiastic young agrarians are ready to take part in the sustainable food movement, but need opportunities to learn alongside established practitioners so that vital, experience-based knowledge can be transferred to a new generation of land stewards.
Our apprenticeship program works closely with carefully selected rancher and farmer mentors who are dedicated stewards of the land; practice beyond organic, regenerative methods of food production; provide excellent animal care; and who are natural teachers for young agrarians.
