Happy National Agriculture Day

Happy National Agriculture Day from all of us at the Cornell Small Farms Program!

We extend our gratefulness to all who work hard to feed, fuel, and fiber us, fill our landscapes with beauty, help our farmers with seeds and supplies, and support agriculture as a viable and meaningful vocation. Your combined efforts continue to bring bounty to our tables. Your commitment to our NYS agriculture has been critical during the trying times of this pandemic.

We are excited to do our part in supporting your agricultural work. Your interest, hunger for knowledge, and commitment to small farms is what feeds and motivates us.

We celebrate today and every day your efforts to sustain vibrant small farms that feed our communities and our local economies.
