Description

Farm and home management advisors teach people how to manage their farms and homes. These advisors teach farmers how to care for livestock, grow and harvest crops, and plan a budget. They teach farmers how to use complex equipment, and how to improve and sell farm products. Farm and Home Management Advisors are in the Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources career cluster and the Agribusiness Systems pathway.

As sustainable farming becomes more prevalent, advisors will need to help farmers do their work with an overall eye toward the farm’s impact on the local ecosystem. Considerations include: protecting existing natural areas to the greatest extent possible; selecting regionally native plants; reduce use of pesticides, practice integrated pest management; compost and mulch on site to eliminate solid waste; practice soil and water conservation; reduce use of power landscape equipment; and avoid use of invasive exotics
