GENEVA, N.Y. — The annual NYCO event brings together local farmers to make connections and build relationships that help them succeed. An informal potluck lunch is the centerpiece of the event as well as the lively discussions that follow. To kickstart discussions, the group hosts several presentations from farmers, researchers, and industry leaders on topics such as interseeding, new no-till methods, and streamlining economics of dairy operations. This year, the meetings will be held on January 9 and February 13, with the first meeting focusing on dairy and the second meeting focusing on field crops. Both meetings will run from 10am to 2pm.
This year, the New York Certified Organic field crop and dairy farmer-to-farmer meetings – or “NYCO” for short – will return to the Jordan Hall auditorium 630 W North Street in Geneva. Participants are encouraged to bring a dish to pass for lunch. The meetings are free to attend, and all are welcome.
