The Seed Farm is a farm incubator in the Lehigh Valley that provides new farmers with access to affordable land, equipment, infrastructure, and capital—resources that can otherwise act as a hurdle to starting a sustainable farm business.

Whether you’re an aspiring or beginning grower seeking regular technical assistance on a small-scale (⅛ to ½ acre) plot, or you have a few seasons under your belt and are ready to increase your production to several acres, a farm incubator could offer you the resources you need to hit the ground running.  

Join us for a tour of The Seed Farm’s incubator site. We’ll take a look at the land, infrastructure, and equipment available to aspiring and beginning growers—including a walk-in packhouse, tractors, and greenhouse. We’ll also discuss the nuts and bolts of the different ways farmers lease and learn at this unique incubator farm.

Additional information
