Ontario County, NY Agriculture Roundtables
Cornell Cooperative Extension and the Ontario County Agriculture Enhancement Board are hosting Agriculture Roundtables during Fall 2012 for farmers, landowners, and people with an interest in local agriculture issues to talk about their concerns and observations
This discussion will be used to guide the development of a new Agriculture Enhancement Plan for Ontario County, NY. Cornell Cooperative Extension will gather input from the community for future planning around topics such as:
What are the biggest town-level challenges or obstacles you see in the next few years for your farm?
What ways would you like to see the town and county address the needs of farmers and agriculture landowners?
Should farmers pursue private farmland protection plans, or look to local government for support?
What do you wish more neighbors in your town knew about local farms?
These meetings are open to the public. Individuals at the meeting will be asked to speak briefly about their concerns, hopes, and expectations as farmers and agriculture landowners, particularly about Town-level issues. Comments will be recorded and provided to the appropriate town and county entities to assist with agriculture planning and local policies.
