Small Farms Program: http://smallfarms.cornell.edu/
The mission of the Small Farms Program is to foster the sustainability of diverse, thriving small farms that contribute to food security, healthy rural communities, and the environment by encouraging small farms-focused research and extension programs and fostering collaboration in support of small farms.
The Northeast Beginning Farmers Program is a project of Cornell designed to provide an array of resources for the new farmer. On their website, farmers can find tutorials and worksheets to help guide the business plan process, videos of experienced farmers giving advice and up close production techniques, a map of service providers, and the Guide to Farming in NY, among many other useful resources.
The Cornell Commercial Vegetable Production program is a cooperative effort between Extension educators and horticulturists, entomologists, pathologists, economists, and engineers at both the New York Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva and academic departments in Ithaca.
