What do you want to see for the future of New York State's food system by 2050?

December 7, 2021

What do you want to see for the future of New York State's food system by 2050?

We invite you to participate in a statewide Farmer Survey to prioritize investments for the NYS food and farming system as we look towards building an equitable, resilient, profitable, and healthy future.  

Results from this survey will contribute to creating VISION 2050, a project led by the Center for Agricultural Development & Entrepreneurship (CADE). The Cornell Small Farms Program is a project partner working in collaboration with the Dyson School of Applied Economics at Cornell, faculty from Columbia University, Hartwick College, and SUNY Cobleskill.

CADE Executive Director Phoebe Schreiner states, "We are asking stakeholders, especially farmers, to identify barriers to be overcome and areas of opportunity and growth, so that we can encourage the adoption of a New York State strategic plan to strengthen agricultural development and our food system for the long term, inform policy, resources, and State programs and services."

The survey represents the second phase of the stakeholder engagement process, built on the results of 17 focus groups which brought together a total of 90 stakeholders from all sectors of the NYS food system in a series of roundtable discussions. This project follows a similar course chartered by Food Solutions New England, who released a 2060 Food Vision document produced by six partner states in 2014.

Take the Farmer Survey now!

This survey will take 15 minutes to complete and will close on December 31, 2021. Please share with all NYS farmers in your network.
