Become Ag Savvy

Savvy: knowledgeable, having common sense and good judgment and well informed about a particular subject.  Just the traits every good farmer needs. Whether farming is your full-time job or if you are a hobby farmer, you need to be Ag Savvy.

We know farming is fun and exciting. But it can also be challenging and from time-to-time, you may have questions you can’t answer. A&T; Cooperative Extension developed Ag Savvy, designed for small farmers, to answer your questions and help make your farm a success. You’re a small farmer if you have 179 acres or less and earn $50,000 or less in agricultural products each year.

This Ag Savvy website will offer you topics of interest, the latest information on farming techniques and equipment and valuable resources, including those from USDA. We will also share new farming methods and some web applications that we have tested to make sure they will work for you.

Growing safe and affordable food, supporting your family and contributing to the country’s food security is important work . We want to do all we can to help you.

We are your partners and want you to be Ag Savvy.
