TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Beginning Farmers Coalition is inviting aspiring farmers and ranchers to attend its inaugural meeting.

The session will be held in conjunction with the Kansas Farmers Union annual convention Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 in Topeka.

Kansas Farmers Union membership specialist Mary Howell says the group wants to give beginning farmers a way to make their choice to pursue farming easier and less painful than figuring it out alone.

The coalition aims to provide education and advocate for beginning farmers in the state. As a fledgling organization, it plans to use this first meeting to find out what services it can provide to those people interested in pursuing an agricultural career.
