New York Certified Organic Winter Meetings
Jordan Hall, Geneva Experimental Station - 614 W. North Street, Geneva NY

New York Certified Organic (NYCO) has set the dates for its winter 2017 meetings, bringing grain and dairy farmers together with guest speakers on the organic crops and dairy production. There is no cost or need to register to attend the NYCO meetings; participants are asked to bring a dish to pass at the potluck lunch. Round table discussions after lunch provide farmers the opportunity to ask questions and hear from the combined experience of the group. These sessions help advance organic production in New York and have been helpful to new and transitioning farmers as well as long-time organic producers.
