California’s Grange Farm School provides programs designed for “practical people who are ready to make a difference in the real world. Students with a desire to enter a career in agriculture equipped with essential skills, knowledge, and resources. Students who want to be among the million new farmers, ranchers, and small businesses this country needs in order to transform agriculture through creative and profitable enterprises.”

Does that sound like you? Because if it does, you should know that the Greenhorns give this program their highest recommendation.

The Grange School’s 14 week residential, Student Program aims to offer students the “tools and confidence to manage a successful agricultural enterprise, whether in farming, ranching, or related fields.” Participants live and work on a beautiful 5,000 acre ranch with diverse vegetables, grains, fruit trees, and livestock and participate in a comprehensive curriculum in business management, industrial arts, animal husbandry, soil and ecology, and crop production. The program hopes to provide students with a whole-system framework combined with classroom instruction and hands-on knowledge.
