Farms and Woodlands

Farms and Woodlands

We know how deeply you care about your land

University of Minnesota Extension has developed the Farms and Woodlands course especially for landowners who want to get the most out of every acre of their land.  This comprehensive program teaches landowners a whole system approach to farm and woodland management.  Learn how you can make your property more resilient!

Education to fit your schedule

Our hybrid approach to landowner education is the best of both worlds, allowing for flexibility while still occasionally getting your hands dirty:

  • Twelve online, self-paced modules contain exercises and group discussions, so you can complete the work on your schedule while still contributing to group learning.
  • Three in-person field tours and two virtual meetings enhance your learning and provide an opportunity to meet with and learn from your neighbors.  

Comprehensive learning

After completing the Farms and Woodlands program, you will know your options for woodland management, know who to contact if you need assistance, and have a customized action plan to accomplish one project on your property.
