Fellows are the heart of Farm Commons. Our fellows are community members who recognize that each of us has something valuable to give and receive when building our collective resilience around farm business law. Everyone has a role to play, which is why we have two distinct Fellowships. Together, these programs catalyze the sharing of knowledge, wisdom, and support to farmers nationwide. Which program is right for you? Learn more below.
