Elevate Ag Online Course

A FREE Online Course for New England Dairy Farmers

Tell Your Story

As a farmer, you’re often told that you need to tell your story, but aren’t always told where to start or how to begin. Elevate Ag is an online course and community created by dairy farmer Tara Vander Dussen and rancher Natalie Kovarik that provides access to the tools and resources you need to craft and share your agriculture story.

New England Dairy is offering FREE access to Elevate Ag for dairy farmers throughout our region to support you in this area (a $749 value). 

“Elevate Ag gave me renewed purpose in regards to sharing online. I felt like I was pushing out content with little direction and ultimately spinning my wheels. Natalie and Tara pushed me to redefine what I wanted for my internet presence and helped me fine tune my voice. The insight they offer into the social media world and their joint passion for Ag has been just what I needed.” – Elevate Ag Participant
