Agriculture

Cornell Cooperative Extension Schoharie and Otsego Counties offers research-based resources and education to our farming community, and addresses the overall goals of our local Ag & Farmland Protection Plans. Educators help farms to remain viable and profitable businesses by providing comprehensive, research-based information in animal and natural resource husbandry, business planning and marketing, diversified farm products, and technical and financial support opportunities.  We connect clients with Cornell University faculty, Extension experts, and with other community agencies that also can provide information and support..
