Experiential Learning  on-farm visits and learning activities as part of the process for evaluation of enterprises, trying out ideas on others and receiving feedback
Community based  building networks of resource people and connections that help location of needed information
Whole Farm and Sustainability Focus  dependent on environmental, financial and quality of life aspects
Small Farm Focus  geared to smaller acreage operations that produce high value specialty crops and/or livestock and direct market to customers  BUT can be taken by producers with any sized operation as a means to learn more about specialty farming.
