Veteran Scholarship – NYS Fiber Conference

This one day conference is open to new and beginning animal fiber producers who are looking for additional information to better make educated decisions regarding what species and breed of animal to raise and their efforts to produce, use or market their animal’s fiber. Participants will leave with a better understanding of what they can do with their animal fiber or its value-added products to increase its market value; whether marketed through direct-to-consumer channels, commodity markets or wholesale.

Bailey joined the Small Farms Program in 2022 as a veterans project associate with Farm Ops. She has a fond appreciation for the sacrifices that our veterans, active-duty military members, and their families make for our country as many close to her have served. Her work supports veterans who wish to explore or further their agricultural ventures with educational resources, training, and opportunities to network with other farmer veterans. Her goal is that veterans ultimately find a renewed sense of purpose through agriculture in their communities.
