Farm Strategic Planning, Agricultural and CAFO Engineering

As the Farm Strategic Planning Specialist with the Harvest NY team, Tim will be working with statewide PRO-DAIRY specialists, regional and local Cornell Cooperative Extension educators and agribusiness professionals to enhance farm-level growth. This growth will take place both in the form of increased cow numbers and increased production per cow where appropriate, with emphasis on economically and environmentally sustainable growth strategies to ensure long-term continued supply of milk to meet the processing demands.

In developing solutions Tim will be drawing from a solid educational foundation that includes undergraduate and graduate degrees in dairy management and nutrition, as well as a degree in engineering. This is further tempered by over 30 years of practical experience successfully managing university and commercial dairies, providing nutritional services, and designing and inspecting agricultural structures and CAFO best management practices.

Starting a Winery in NNY: Considerations and Costs

Are you interested in starting a winery in Northern New York? CCE Harvest New York has put together a report and interactive Excel spreadsheets on Starting a Winery in Northern New York: Winery Establishment Considerations and Costs.

The report provides a general overview of starting a winery in Northern New York. You will find information on current wine sales, markets, winery establishment costs, licensing resources, growing grapes vs purchasing grapes or juice, winery building, and potential financial help resources.

Additionally, we have created Excel spreadsheets to help you determine some start-up costs and considerations. Within the Cost Calculating Spreadsheet, you will find worksheets for Yield per Vine, Yield per Acre, and Production Establishment Cost. Instructions are provided on the top of each worksheet.
