The Small Farms Program is involved in a diverse array of projects intended to build the capacity of small-scale farmers across New York State. The projects listed to the left are in addition to the Small Farm Quarterly Magazine that we publish in cooperation with Country Folks. We issue a monthly electronic newsletter called the “Small Farms Update” which summarizes small farm news, events, resources and grants. Check our Events page for upcoming offerings.
We teach an undergraduate class called Exploring the Small Farm Dream that will meet Fall, 2011. Topics include diversified farming, high-value horticulture, grass-based farming, agroforestry, dairy and livestock opportunities, community-supported agriculture, farm business planning, access to land, marketing strategies, juggling jobs-family-farming & more.
