The Texas AgrAbility Program and Battleground to Breaking Ground Project of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will host a farm tour and agricultural business workshop Oct. 19-20 in the San Angelo area for veterans, individuals with disabilities, and beginning farmers and ranchers.
“The tour and workshop are both free and open to anyone in the area interested in starting an agriculture-related business,” said Erin Kimbrough, AgriLife Extension specialist in family and community health.
Kimbrough said both the farm tour and agricultural business program will be held at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center, 7887 U.S. Highway 87 in Grape Creek, just outside San Angelo.
