In 2017 the Center for Land-Based Learning launched the first registered apprenticeship program for a Beginning Farm and Ranch Manager in California. Through partnership with a local farm and state funding, this program was developed to address the shortage of farm managers and supervisors on California farms and ranches as they begin to retire. At the same time, the goal was to develop a statewide, high-quality, professional training program for aspiring farmers to have a pathway into a stable career in farming. The Apprenticeship program is now expanding to include other occupations in agriculture that are ripe for the apprenticeship model.
