Cornell Small Farms Program

The Cornell Small Farms Program was established in 2001 as a program of Cornell University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) to increase research and extension for small farms.

We support farmers at all phases of farm business development.

In the years since, the Cornell Small Farms Program has engaged in research and extension projects focused on small farm viability by working collaboratively with a network of CALS faculty and staff, Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) educators, and other small farm advocates throughout New York.

These partnerships have helped our program offer an increasingly dynamic set of programming to engage farmers of all enterprises and experience levels. Thousands of farmers participate in our online courses, in-person trainings, and other programming each year.

We commit to ensuring, to the greatest extent possible, that our time, energy, and financial resources are committed equitably to all people. We will continue to be actively engaged and involved in relationship building, collaboration, and support of efforts to build diverse, equitable, and just food systems. Read more about this commitment in our Equity and Justice Statement.

Our Vision: We envision a future where diverse and vibrant urban and rural farms build human capacity, revitalize communities, supply regional food systems, and foster ecological resilience in a changing world.

Our Mission: We help farmers get expert assistance to facilitate all phases of small farm business development, from initial growth to optimization to maturity.

Our Work: We foster research, extension, and education projects that support and encourage the sustainability of diverse, thriving small farms.
