The Cornell Small Farm Program (SFP) engages in research and extension projects and collaborations that support and enhance the viability of small farms in New York.

This Beginning Farmer Project Coordinator will oversee current projects focused on improving long-term viability of “advanced” beginning farmers (defined as farmers operating 3-10 years) and helping military veterans entering into farming as a career. In addition, this person will help facilitate our regional professional development network for beginning farmer service providers.
