About Cornell Cooperative Extension
Cornell Cooperative Extension consists of an integrated network of professionals that includes campus-based faculty and staff, regionally deployed specialists and county-based educators and professional employees provided literally thousands of different programs throughout the state that reached business owners, community leaders, entrepreneurs, homeowners, and families. CCE programs support a diverse, sustainable, and profitable NY agriculture industry, aim to encourage improved nutrition and health practices, educate New Yorkers on a broad range of natural resources concerns, and engage New Yorkers in land-use training, among other services.
Contact a Local Small Farm Educator
Not sure who to talk to at your local Extension office? Almost all of New York’s 57 counties — and New York City — now have a designated “Small Farm Contact” who can help you get the information and assistance you need. Give them a call. If they can’t answer your questions, they will probably be able to connect you with a regional Extension specialist, farmer, or other resource person in your area. Locate your nearest extension office and contact information at http://www.csrees.usda.gov/Extension/.
We encourage all small farm operators in New York to join your local Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Association. That way you can stay better informed about educational programs, farm tours, Cornell research, and local ag related news. You can also let Extension know what you need, and even serve on a Program Committee to help guide Extension programming in your county.
