ONEIDA CO., N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oneida County along with Oneida County Farm Bureau are pleased to present the Twilight Tour summer series of on-farm tours and discussions. Stemming from interest in our Young Farmers’ Discussion group, but curtailed and interrupted by COVID and challenging farming schedules, it is time to get off the home farm to learn and network together.
Three tour stops are scheduled for the months of June, July and August, with more stops currently being planned and confirmed. There is no charge to attend, but registrations are required in order to receive complete tour location details. Social distancing practices will be adhered to at each event. Registrations can be placed my calling 315.736.3394 ext. 132 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please read below for tour dates and topics.
