Seneca Falls, NY – From sustainable farming practices and local food production to invasive species, the Cornell University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Center at the August 6-8, 2013 Empire Farm Days is a one-stop shop for exploring research and technologies that keep Northeast agricultural producers successful. The event is held at Rodman Lott and Son Farms in Seneca Falls, NY.

Starting at 9am each day, farmers, gardeners, and landowners can explore the diverse agricultural resources available from Cornell while enjoying local food selections at the Cornell Marketplace at the largest outdoor agricultural show in the Northeast. New York cheeses, apples, wine, fresh-roasted corn and food products – all developed with Cornell expertise – will be available to sample.

Activity centers at the Cornell Center include Plant and Insect Sleuth – where the public can bring bug specimens for identification, and the Kidz Corner celebrating fruit and vegetables with the 2014 Ag Literacy Week book selection Who Grew My Soup by Tom Darbyshire and the I Love NY Agriculture Art and Writing Contest winners.

Cornell Cooperative Extension experts in vegetable and small fruit, grapes, dairy, livestock and field crop production will be on hand to answer questions.

The Cornell Alumni and Friends Reception is set for Wednesday, August 7 from 2:30pm to 4pm.
