New Entry's National Incubator Farm Training Initiative (NIFTI) is a backbone organization that provides comprehensive one-on-one consulting, educational resources, and professional development opportunities for dozens of organizations throughout North America.
NIFTI began in early 2012 and is a collaboration between New Entry, the Intervale Center, the Minnesota Food Association, the Agriculture and Land-Based Training Association, Cultivating Community, and the International Rescue Committee. With our combined decades of experience, NIFTI and our network of experts can make sure you never have to reinvent the wheel.
Thanks to our generous program sponsors most of NIFTI's services are free of charge, and all others are available on a sliding scale. Contact us with your specific needs and we can discuss options for tailoring your technical assistance.

Now in its sixth year, the NIFTI National Field School supports professional development and network building for Incubator Farm Project staff from across the country. The Field School is structured around interactive workshops, facilitated resource review sessions and regional networking and goal-setting opportunities, with ample time to connect with others working in your unique field. A farm tour of the Agriculture and Land Based Training Association will introduce you to the work of one of the oldest incubator projects in the United States.
