HVYFC is working with the National Young Farmers Coalition, Cornell University, and the USDA on a training on how the USDA's Whole Farm Revenue Insurance program and other subsidized crop insurance options might work for small and mid-scale farms like yours. Yes, insurance for the small, diversified farm! This free evening workshop, organized by HVYFC and hosted by the Hudson Valley Farm Hub, is your opportunity to learn how and why to check out this program.
Cornell Extension Associate (and young farmer) Ariana Taylor-Stanley will share the basics of how cropinsurance works, special discounted and free options for beginning and diversified farmers, and new web tools to help you quickly explore options for your farm. Come check out what's available - even if it's not right for 2017, know what's out there and connect with other farmers. (We promise it's more fun than shoveling snow off your greenhouse!)
