Small Farm Program

The Small Farm Program is a part of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Cooperative Extension Program. The program targets assistance to socially disadvantaged producers, limited-resource producers and small producers (those with an income of $250,000 or less). The program is designed to work with vegetable crop, row crop, livestock and forestry producers. A special emphasis is placed on reaching producers who have not used university and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) assistance.

The program takes a wholistic approach to serving its clients. First, financial planning assistance is provided to determine the feasibility of the operation. This is followed by production assistance with help from the UAPB horticulture and livestock programs. Finally, marketing education is provided, especially to those involved in alternative enterprises such as fruit, vegetables and small ruminants.

The Small Farm Program also works and partners with the different USDA agencies to ensure that targeted audiences are aware of their programs. These agencies include the Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS), Farm Service Agency (FSA), Rural Development (RD), Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), Risk Management Agency (RMA) and the Arkansas Department of Agriculture (ADA).
