HANCEVILLE, ALA. – Wallace State’s Small Farmer Training program is already expanding its offerings, beginning with the Summer 2019 semester.

The Farm and Ready to Market (FARM) short-term certificate consists of 24 credit hours and can be completed in two semesters.

“This certificate is offered during the summer and fall semesters and concentrates on fruit and vegetable production and marketing it,” said Wallace State Farm Manager Instructor Travis Kress.

Classes on the summer schedule for the FARM certificate are Vegetable Crops, Intro to Horticulture, Agriculture Salesmanship and Soils and Fertilizers. Classes planned for the fall for the degree are Agribusiness Management, Plant Propagation, Pest Management and Agricultural Equipment Repair.

Online summer semester registration for the short-term certificate begins Monday, April 15 for Wallace State students with 45+ previously earned credit hours at the college. All students can register on Thursday, April 18.

The new FARM certificate is a complement to the non-credit Small Farmer Training program, which begins this week and is designed to prepare participants to begin and operate their own farms or serve as a farm manager of an existing farm.
