Say you want to become a farmer. If you didn't grow up on a farm, where do you start? In Cabarrus County, you can go to farm school.
The Elma C. Lomax Incubator Farm was launched in 2009 to give first-generation farmers an opportunity to learn the trade.
And earlier this month, it was the subject of a funding controversy that led to the organic farm being shut down for a week in the middle of the growing season.
