The Greenhorns

The mission of The Greenhorns is simple: to promote, recruit, and support young farmers in America. Yet there is nothing simple in how they do this. Greenhorns started out in 2007 as a documentary titled “The Greenhorns” and has expanded ever since.  They cofounded the National Young Farmer Coalition, they published the Greenhorns Guide for Beginning Farmers, they have an online network of over 3,000 young farmers, they host a weekly radio show, and they host events across the country.  They even have the “Serve Your Country Food” map, a visualization tool that allows users to see where some of these farmers are located.  Check it out here! It’s great to see so many in the Northeast!
You can view the trailer for the documentary below.
