Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Conference

March 27 - March 28, 2018

Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Conference
2018 Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Conference
The 2018 Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Conference will be on Tuesday March 27th at the del Lago Casino & Resort in Waterloo, NY featuring multiple tracks with sessions covering legal issues, tax issues, marketing, distribution, beer and cider production issues. Hear from Government officials, craft beverage industry representatives, university researchers, extension educators, brewers, and cider makers about important topics related to your business and industry.

Harvest NY Ag Business Development and Marketing Specialist, Lindsey Pashow, will be discussing CCE's Cider Apply Supply Chain Survey.

This event includes a trade show and opportunities for networking (including a Social Hour following the sessions) with others in your industry. The cost for this event is $100 (or $90 for each additional person from the same brewery, cidery, or farm). This includes a light breakfast, lunch, an evening social hour and a 2018 Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Glass. Be sure to register early (before March 20th) to avoid the late registration price of $115. Register online for the conference. Sponsored by Waterloo Container.


Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Conference Field Trips

The day following the main 2018 Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Conference we have two separate field trips planned (this costs an extra $20). Participants will choose between the 'Brewery' field trip and the 'Cidery' field trip. The Brewery Field trip will include a trip to Fleur de Lis Beer Works. They will be brewing one of their beers while we are there -explaining the steps as they brew. The Cidery Field trip will be to Red Jacket Orchard and Nursery, as well as a local cidery to be decided.

This registration site is for people registering for the Finger Lakes Craft Beverage Conference (FLCBC), or people registering for the FLCBC and the FLCBC Field Trips.

NY Crop Insurance Availability by County & Crop

Apiculture, Dairy-RP, LGM, Nursery, PRF and WFRP policies are available throughout the entire state. Here is a table showing RMA crop insurance availability by county and crop in New York State.  

If a crop is not covered in your county, you may still be eligible for a written agreement for that crop. Please contact an insurance agent to see if this is an option for you.

More information about crop insurance is available through Cornell's New York Crop Insurance Education Program.

Beginning Producer Benefits for Crop Insurance

A qualifying beginning producer can potentially receive benefits in the crop insurance program. These benefits are designed to help start your operation. In this article, Stephen Hadcock, Capital Area Agriculture and Horticulture Program, outlines the 4 crop insurance benefits available to beginning producers.
1) An exemption from paying the administrative fee for catastrophic coverage and additional coverage.
2) Receive an additional 10 percentage points of premium subsidy for additional coverage policies with a subsidy premium.
3) Utilize the actual production history (APH) of a farming operation that producer was previously involved in.
4) Utilize 80% of an applicable T-yield, instead of the normal 60%, as a substitute Yield Adjustment.
