As the cost of owning land rises, and farm profitability tightens, now's the time to evaluate the role that leased and rented land plays on our local farms - and our bottom lines.

Join Farm Business Management Specialist, Katelyn Walley-Stoll, to learn more about the considerations and resources that are available for evaluating and executing your land lease options. Topics of discussion include written lease agreements, determining "fair" rental rates, and communication strategies.

This will be held virtually via an interactive Zoom webinar. You will receive instructions to join the webinar prior to the event. We will be distributing a recording and session slides/resources to all registered participants.

While this webinar is free to attend, pre-registration is required:

Is Grazing Sheep Beneath Solar Arrays and Opportunity for Your Future?

September 25, 2023
Mt. Morris, NY

Grazing sheep beneath utility-scale solar arrays can build wealth of present and future sheep farmers as vegetation management service providers and access to additional pasture. The Cornell Cooperative Enterprise Program (CEP) conducted a survey earlier this year completed by over 600 farmers. Farmers identified barriers to grazing sheep under solar arrays and weighed in on need for a producer-led organization to negotiate contracts on their behalf, coordinate logistics of multiple flocks, provide transport of sheep to and from the site, care for sheep while on-site, and provide supplemental mowing. Additional questions focused on processing and marketing needs.
