Since 2015, people from all over the globe have been joining the Upstart U community to learn, share, and build farms together. Each day, student farmers answer questions, make plans, and create new goals for their small farm businesses. Nothing else is more inspiring than seeing the contribution of these people to the farming industry!

Now we want to share some of the accomplishments that those farmers have reached in the last year.

But first, a snapshot of growth:

Last March when we celebrated Upstart U’s first birthday, there were 23 courses and 556 students.

Hundreds of Upstart U students have started their farming journey (that we know of), and many more are on their way to join them.

The Upstart U Facebook Community has taken off with tips, questions, and pictures of your farms. You’ve created a rich place for learning and collaboration.

This year, we partnered with Veterans to Farmers to make farming education more accessible to aspiring farmers who need it.

We introduced foreign language resources with over 10 courses available as eBooks in Spanish, with 4 eBooks in Portuguese—and counting!

This growth won’t stop any time soon

Since then, the potential of farming has spread and hundreds of new farmers have started planning farms and growing food for their communities. Here at Bright Agrotech, we’re both honored and excited to be surging forward with this wave of unbelievably tough, motivated farmers.

We want to show you how much we appreciate your dedication. So we’re discounting Upstart U memberships for both new and existing students with the 2nd Annual Upstart University Birthday Sale.
