Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County in collaboration with Oswego County Soil and Water, USDA Farm Service Agency and USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service will again be sponsoring a workshop for agriculture producers. The four agencies that serve the farmers and residents in Oswego County will be together on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, from 11am to 2:30pm at the Mexico VFW, 5930 Scenic Ave, Mexico, NY.
The program is designed primarily for beginning farmers who are looking for information on how to improve or expand their agriculture businesses.

The goal is to improve the awareness of agriculture agencies that are available to address the challenges faced by agricultural producers in Oswego County.
