One free resource for farmers in Central New York just got even better than before.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Madison County is teaming up with NY FarmNet to provide a great opportunity for farmers in our region. They are officially setting up office hours to be held in the Agriculture Business Center (AgBC) in Morrisville. Here farmers or agriculture related business owners will get access to even more tools free of charge.


NY FarmNet offers a wide range of services that are free, confidential, and unbiased. Their philosophy is to take a proactive approach when working with farm families to prevent future crises and challenges they face.

Personal and financial consultants will work with families in the privacy of the AgBC offices at CCE Madison. No matter the problem, question or concern, they are there to help find the best way to solve your problem.
