Support Your Local Farmers - ONLINE!
The Family Farm Day (FFD) Planning Committee decided that holding FFD in 2020 is not feasible, if not irresponsible. Unfortunately, FFD 2020, as we know it, is cancelled, and will be back in 2021.
MEANWHILE – Here’s what we are doing, keeping in mind that customer interest in our local food supply has skyrocketed. CSAs, farm stands, and farmers’ markets are selling most everything and presumably will throughout the season, an opportunity we want to help keep foremost in the public eye.
Instead of a printed Farm Guide, we are offering ONLINE a Farm Product Listing for area farms looking to continue to build awareness of agriculture and the amazing food supply in the region. A farm product listing will include enough information for potential customers to contact farms for additional information and farm product sales. We plan to promote the Farm Listing with a 15-30 video message to be posted (‘liked’ and shared) on social media throughout the season. Any other means to help publicize is always appreciated and is especially effective by farms.
If you are a farm in Schoharie, Otsego, or Delaware County (regardless of whether you participated in any previous year), and want to be included in the FFD 2020 Farm Product Listing, complete the information form below or print and return by July 8, 2020. Turn-around time is short. Indeed, the season is just getting underway; we expect the farm listings will be accessible in approximately three weeks. Note that all farmers’ markets will be listed online.
There is no cost for your listing, no deposit or certificate of insurance needed. All refundable deposits received from the original FFD solicitation are being returned promptly. We look forward to hearing from you!
