Farm Fellowship

Restoring the Standardbred Poultry Industry

Farm Fellowship Program

The Good Shepherd Conservancy’s Farm Fellowship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become a part of history. The program gives farmers a chance to join a nationwide conservation effort that will, in turn, create a true end-to-end alternative to the factory farm poultry system.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn directly from Frank Reese at the Good Shepherd Conservation Center and gain access to a wide array of benefits (listed below), including: access to Frank Reese’s world-renowned Certified Standardbred genetics, a network of producers and consultants, training in Standardbred Poultry production, ongoing technical support, marketing assistance, and financial aid.

Please fill out the contact form to apply.
