National Incubator Farm Training Initiative

New Entry's National Incubator Farm Training Initiative (NIFTI) is a backbone organization that provides comprehensive one-on-one technical assistance, educational resources, and professional development opportunities for incubator farm projects around the nation.

NIFTI began in early 2012 and is a collaboration between New Entry and several partner organizations. As of 2018 our core partners include: The Intervale Center, Minnesota Food Association, Agriculture and Land-Based Training Association (ALBA), Global Growers, Carolina Farm Stewardship Association, and Old Fort Market Garden Incubator. With our combined decades of experience, NIFTI and our network of experts can make sure you never have to reinvent the wheel.
