ONEONTA, N.Y. — The Center for Agricultural Development & Entrepreneurship (CADE) is excited to announce a new workshop entitled “Licensing: What to Do & How to Do It” in which farm and food business entrepreneurs will learn about New York State Agriculture and Markets rules and regulations on processing livestock in NY and on commercial kitchens. Ag and Markets inspectors will talk about different types of licenses and inspections, and what licenses you need for different types of businesses in NY. Participants may also submit their own questions at the workshop, scheduled to take place on Monday, November 13 from 3pm to 5pm at the CADE office on 5 Elm Street in Oneonta, NY.
Those interested in registering for the workshop should firstname.lastname@example.org.
This free workshop is part of CADE’s Farm and Food Business Incubator (FFBI) program. The Incubator provides business training and value-added product development facilities for new and developing farm and food entrepreneurs. Farmers looking to start, expand, or diversity their farm, or to increase farm profit, products or markets, are encouraged to register and participate in this series of free workshops.
Other scheduled workshops include the popular 3-part Business Plan, Financial Plan, and Marketing Plan series. The “Producing for the Hub” workshop will connect farmers to NYC markets such as farm-to-table restaurants, specialty shops, and small batch city-based processors.
All workshops are free. A partnership project between CADE and SUNY Cobleskill, the Farm and Food Business Incubator is funded by Empire State Development, a NYS economic development grantor. The Incubator received initial funding in 2016, and over 300 people have attended the workshops to date.
