CCE Flock Talks Presents:
Producing, Processing, and Packing Eggs for Sale
Wednesday, January 26th, 7pm - 8pm
Keeping chickens, ducks, quail, and other poultry for egg production is a common practice on many small farms. As we move into longer days, egg production will be ramping up, providing ample opportunities to sell eggs.
Join Lynn Bliven, Ag & Natural Resources Issue Leader with CCE-Allegany and Amy Barkley, Livestock and Beginning Farm Specialist with the SWNY Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Program, as they share information on food safety, product quality, and regulations surrounding the production of table eggs from flocks of under 3,000 hens.
Topics will include:
- Food Safety in the Coop
- Collection, Refrigeration, and Washing
- Sorting Eggs for Quality
- Candling Demonstration
- Regulations for Packing and Labeling
- Maintaining Food Safety Through Sale

Business Planning for Beginning Farmers
April 10, 2023
Business plans for farms are often viewed as yet another chore to do and usually result in dusty binders taking up space on the office shelf. This discussion based workshop will walk you through the mental exercise of planning your future agricultural adventures. Participants will leave with a better understanding of the use of a business plan, the essential components, and a "to-do" list of things to think about to inform future planning efforts. Additional opportunities for one-on-one follow up will also be offered. FSA Borrower credits may be made available for your attendance. This workshop will be taught by Katelyn Walley-Stoll, Team Leader and Farm Business Management Specialist from the Southwest New York Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Program with Cornell Cooperative Extension. She is a graduate of Cornell University with a degree in Animal Science and Ag Business Management, and owns and operates a diversified livestock farm.
