prideofnylogoCornell University and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences are working with New York State to spur economic growth and investment in the state’s agricultural and food economy. Please join us to learn about Governor Cuomo’s key initiatives and efforts in this vital sector of New York’s economy – from increasing institutional purchases of local foods, establishing new farmers’ markets, and marketing under the Taste NY program. As the land grant institution, CALS is a key partner working with the State, connecting applied research and extension directly to farms, foodies, and food manufacturers – working to train new farmers, create new added value food production, and provide scientific advice on the latest challenges to farmers.
