New Entrant Chicken Farmer Program

Applications for the 2022 New Entrant Chicken Farmer Program are now closed.

The New Entrant Chicken Farmer Program helps qualified new farmers enter the growing chicken business. Since the program’s inception, CFO has welcomed thirty-four family-run chicken farms into the industry. As the chicken industry continues to succeed, the Board recognizes areas for growth and expanding market opportunities. Two families were accepted into the program in 2021.

New farmers accepted into the program will benefit from the wide range of support services offered by CFO, including educational resources, on-farm training and other assistance to ensure that new farmers can make a successful transition into the industry.
