If you are looking for farmland or you have farmland and want a farmer to work it for you, an upcoming Peconic Land Trust forum in Riverhead is for you. Next Thursday, Dec. 12, the Peconic Land Trust will review the Farmland for a New Generation New York program, which is coordinated by American Farmland Trust in partnership with the State Department of Agriculture and Markets, agricultural organizations, and land trusts. There will be specific information available to farmers and farmland owners on Long Island.
Speakers include Jacob Israelow of Dirt Partners, Michael Parker of the National Young Farmers Coalition, Anthony Cardona from Cardona & Cardona, and a local farmer. The forum will be held at the Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Education Center, 423 Griffing Avenue in Riverhead, from 4 to 8 p.m.
Registration has been requested by Tuesday, Dec. 10, through Jessie Marcus, the stewardship manager, at 631-283-3195.
