The Leatherstocking Young Farmers Coalition is made up of young and beginning farmers in the Leatherstocking Region of New York (within a 50 mile radius of Cooperstown). As a farmer-driven collective, the chapter creates a platform for networking, skills and resource sharing, and advocacy to create a more viable climate for small-scale sustainable agriculture.
We are an inclusive group with members of all ages and backgrounds. We meet four times a year for potlucks, farm tours, listening sessions with policymakers to share our challenges and resource needs, and informational presentations on member-chosen topics, such as renewable energy, food hubs, marketing, and more.
For farmers, by farmers, join us as we promote beginning & small-scale sustainable agriculture in the Leatherstocking Region of New York State!
