Are you a farmer in Eastern New York with a question about the management side of your farm business? The Cornell Cooperative Extension Eastern NY Commercial Hort Team, in collaboration with CCE County offices, is offering free farm business technical assistance appointments this summer on Tuesdays at various locations in our service region. On Tuesday, July 25 from 9:00am-3:00pm we will be at CCE Warren County.
Topics for consultations can include: labor regulations and management, risk management (insurance and best practices), land use regulations and zoning, other food-regulations (labels, processing), personal finance and farm transition planning, tax and other grant and incentive programs, bookkeeping and recordkeeping, pricing products and market channel assessment, contract terms and negotiation, and loan programs and financing decisions. At your appointment we can either help to answer your questions or direct you to the right resources.
Can't come to Warren County? Not available on July 25? No problem. There are several options for the meetings. You can meet with the ENYCH ag business management specialist, Liz Higgins, in person during your appointment at one of the alternative locations and dates below. You can also schedule an appointment on one of the dates to consult by phone or by video conference, regardless of your location. Access to a computer with high-speed internet access is needed for video conference. Preference for appointments is given to farmers in the 17 counties in NY served by the Eastern NY Team.
