Good Living and Good Farming — Connecting People, Land, and Communities

Are you looking for ways to improve your small farm management? Do you like to read about how other farmers are innovating on their small farms? Are you looking for new ideas, tips and resources to help you reach your farm and family goals?

If so, you’ll enjoy the Small Farms Quarterly. It’s for full-time and part-time farmers, experienced and beginning farmers, and even folks who are just interested in reading about agriculture.

The Small Farms Quarterly is printed four times a year, featuring articles with a variety of technical advice and farmer stories. Launched in 2003 with the goal of supporting small farms in the Northeast, the Quarterly was awarded "Best Publication" by the New York State Association of County Agricultural Agents (NYSACAA) in 2006.

The Quarterly is produced by the Cornell Small Farms Program, with contributions from educators within Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE), faculty and researchers with the Cornell University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS), and other farmers and service providers across the Northeast. We welcome contributions from anyone who has a story to share.

The Quarterly is published by Lee Publications with Country Folks Magazine. Subscribe now to start receiving your copy of the Small Farms Quarterly.
