The FBEN is a free member network established to strengthen and support the work of educators, farmers, and community leaders providing access and experiences of all kinds on productive working farms. We invite you to join our membership community.
The FBEN recognizes that farms come in a wide variety of sizes and structures. Educational activities at farms can be effective regardless of specific characteristics and products. Farms can be owned, leased, for-profit or not-for-profit, raising vegetables, animals, fiber, timber, and other living natural resource products. Educational farms can range from having a single teacher-farmer to a staff of hundreds. Educational farms can serve all ages from infant visitors with their parent, through K to 12 grades, to university students and adults throughout their lives.
