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.

NYS Agricultural Soil Survey

In order to better understand the unique soils used in New York City's urban farms, Cornell Cooperative Extension's urban agriculture program launched the NYC Survey of Agricultural Soils in 2018. After obtaining soil and plant tissue analysis from ten urban farms in NYC, we are expanding the survey in 2019 with the goal of informing best management practices for unique productive urban soils. See our preliminary findings and more information, including a how-to tip sheet for NYC urban farmers on collecting soil samples and getting a soil test.
