The Cornell Small Farms Program is pleased to announce the arrival of the Winter 2021 edition of the Small Farms Quarterly.

In this issue, we feature part three in our “What’s Your Beef?” series, which focuses on beef handling and equipment considerations, an exploration of local grain production in the Hudson Valley, and an account of urban soil-building from the Binghampton Urban Farm.

You can read articles from the Winter 2021 Quarterly online now. Or if you’d rather flip through the articles in a magazine format, take a look at our online reader to peruse this issue or feel free to download the PDF version of the Quarterly.
