Winter 2022


The Cornell Small Farms Program is pleased to announce the arrival of the Spring 2020 edition of the Small Farms Quarterly. In this issue, we feature an update on how our Logs to NYC program is building an alternative supply chain to help inner city shiitake mushroom growers, the second in a series of posts on pasture-raised turkeys on getting turkey poults off to a good start, and information on our Summer Fruit Tour program in collaboration with our Futuro Financiero course. You can read articles from the Winter 2022 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.
