NY Veterans in Agriculture Conference

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

New York State Fairgrounds

Join the Cornell Small Farms Program and the New York Farmer Veteran Coalition, Inc for the NY Veterans in Agriculture conference, where participants will have an opportunity to:

  • Network with other veterans who share their interests in agriculture
  • Connect with service providers committed to their success as agri-entrepreneurs
  • Provide some targeted technical training on business and ag enterprise management (based upon their expressed needs)
  • Celebrate what NY agriculture has to offer for grounding, healing and connecting with local communities

The day will include opening remarks from Commissioner Ball and Senator Ritchie, as well as networking and training sessions for both veterans and service providers. Join us in a celebration of our farmers-veterans and of all of you who serve military veterans and beginning farmers in New York State.

There will also be a formal announcement about the official formation of the New York Chapter of the Farmer Veteran Coalition.  The full board will be present to envision a NY strategy to help our veterans stay connected with each other locally and nationally.

This event is sponsored by USDA BFRDP, Farm Credit East, and NYSDAM.

Note: Registration for the conference is now closed. We hope to see you there!
