GLENVILLE (AP) — New and established farmers can learn to make the most of their resources and about ways to expand their enterprises at an upcoming day-long training event.

Officials say Farm Opportunities Day is scheduled for Jan. 26 at the Mollohan Community Center on the Glenville State College campus.

The event is aimed at helping farmers maximize the business potential for small farms.

Courses will include value-added animal production and marketing, season extension and institutional marketing, farm business management and risk management.

Participants also will have the opportunity to network with nearly 20 businesses, organizations and outreach institutions during a resource fair.

The training is hosted by WVU Extension Service, Glenville State College, the WVU Extension Small Farms Center and the West Virginia Small Business Development Center.
