"The NY Beginning Farmer Project and Cornell Small Farms Program have completed the annual revision of the popular Guide to Farming in NY: What Every Agricultural Entrepreneur Needs to Know. If you work with farmers in any capacity, this guide will prove a useful resource. In 2008 it was
deemed an "Outstanding New Extension Publication" by the NY State Association of County Agriculture Agents.
"The Guide consists of 33 fact sheets covering finding land, food processing regulations, farm vehicle safety, financing, farm taxes, and everything in between. The Guide is available for free
download, as a complete document or by individual fact sheet, from the Cornell Small Farms website:
