Farm-Based Beverages

Farm-Based BeveragesSince 2012, New York State has supported the craft beverage industry by working to cut red tape, increase demand for locally grown farm products, and expand industry-related tourism and economic development. With a growing demand for locally grown inputs, many types of new markets have developed and continue to develop for NY's farmers. In response to this growth, research and education efforts are increasing as members of the farm-based beverage supply chains continues to expand. Harvest NY specialists strive to identify the challenges within these growing markets and work with researchers, production specialists, industry, and policy makers to overcome these barriers.

Upcoming Events

Fluid Milk Processing for Quality and Safety (Online Course)

July 1 - December 31, 2018

This online workshop (with rolling registration) is designed for those involved and interested in fluid milk processing and testing with the intent of providing the tools to support and improve on quality assurance/control and food safety programs for bottled milks. While the course design assumes participants have some prior knowledge of dairy microbiology & processing (e.g., Dairy Science & Sanitation Course), critical concepts will be reviewed and expanded on for those who do not. This course can be taken as a stand-along program, but it also fulfills the core training requirement of a Cornell Dairy Foods Certificate for Fluid Milk Processing for Quality and Safety after all required prerequisite courses have been taken (e.g., Dairy Science & Sanitation, HACCP, HTST).
