EAST AURORA, N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Erie County (CCE Erie) is holding a workshop about evaluating land for specific agricultural uses and setting realistic land values. The workshop is the third in a series of “Ask the Expert” workshops developed in partnership with CCE Associations in Broome, Essex, Madison and Oneida counties. Western New York participants will meet in East Aurora and join the workshop via video conference. Participants from across the state listen to the presentation and then have a chance to ask questions. There will also be time to network with other farmland seekers and owners. The workshop will take place on November 12, from 6:30-8:00 pm at CCE Erie 21 South Grove Street, East Aurora NY.
The workshop expert is Nicole Tommell, the agricultural business management specialist for CCE’s Central New York Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops team. With degrees in agricultural business and agricultural education, plus experience managing a diversified cattle operation with her husband, Nicole has a wealth of practical advice to share.
