Hello everyone!... For starters, Family Farm Day 2020 is still scheduled for August 29. We have time on our side to delay our planning realistically until the end of May. Presumably, little will be back to normal by then; more likely dealing with new normals with which to reassess what might be feasible nearly three months later.
Not unexpectedly, a handful of farms have registered, and with the original deadline being tomorrow, March 31, another handful might be in the mail as of today. Bear with us since we all are working from home and unable to check mail daily. As important, while things unfolded (or folded) so quickly, we decided to delay our sponsor solicitation. I can’t imagine asking at this point, and we won’t know anything further until we resume.
MEANWHILE, if you have registered, thank you! Let us hold onto them. If not, I urge you to register anyway and soon, even if you are unsure about participation. This will help us decidedly when we reassess. Needless to say, we need farms for FFD. If we decide to go ahead, we will have to move very quickly to resume our planning, printing, publicity, etc. It will be much easier to return checks than to start over in June, so please give that consideration.
As noted, we at CCE are working from home as of last week and now through April 30. If you have questions, please email or call my cell at 607.437.9794. We will be in touch again in the interim and remain hopeful for creative ways to host FFD after all!
Thank you all for your interest and patience. Be well and stay tuned!
