Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) puts knowledge to work in pursuit of economic vitality, ecological sustainability and social well-being. CCE brings local experience and research based solutions together, helping New York State families and communities thrive in our rapidly changing world.
With a presence in every county and New York City, CCE puts research into practice by providing high-value educational programs and university-based resources that help solve real-life problems.
The Cornell Small Farms Program was established to increase research and extension for small farms, working collaboratively with CCE on projects focused on small farm viability. CCE educators play a key role in the Cornell Small Farms Program's work, from teaching a majority of our online courses to co-leading some of the program's projects.
