Are you a farmer in Oneida County with a question about the management side of your farm business? Cornell Cooperative Extension Oneida County Ag Team is offering free farm business technical assistance appointments this summer on Tuesdays at the Oneida County CCE office at 121 Second Street, Oriskany, NY.

Topics for consultations can include: Labor regulations and management, risk management (insurance and best practices), land use regulations and zoning, other food-regulations (labels, processing), personal finance and farm transition planning, tax and other grant and incentive programs, bookkeeping and record keeping, pricing products and market channel assessment, contract terms and negotiation, and loan programs and financing decisions. At your appointment we can either answer your question or direct you to the right resource.

Can't come to Oneida County? Not available on the dates below No problem. There are several options for the meetings. You can meet with the Ag business management specialist, Bonnie Collins, bsc33@cornell.edu in person during your appointment at one of the dates below or schedule an appointment on that date to consult by phone 315/736-3394 ext. 104, or by video conference.
