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.

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.
