New York Grown & Certified Workshop
Join SEEC, Schoharie County Office for Agricultural Development, Mohawk Valley Economic Development District, Inc. (MVEDD), and the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets for a New York Grown & Certified Workshop. The workshop will include information addressing the process to apply, benefits of certification, including exclusive grant and marketing opportunities, and more!
Featured experts include Jessica Brooks and George Spohn of the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, Pete Nichols of the Schoharie County Soil and Water Conservation district, Aileen Randolph of the NY Farm Viability Institute and Amanda Kaier of MVEDD.
The program offers opportunities for traditional dairy, livestock, and produce farms, but also for less conventional producers such as fresh cut flowers, maple, honey, firewood, craft beverage ingredients and craft beverage production to name a few!
Paper applications will be available at 287 Main during the event or can be accessed here.
Early registration is encouraged to help shape the specifics of the workshop to match the needs of producers in attendance. A light lunch will be provided for those who attend in person.
