The NYCO planning committee is hosting an on-farm meeting for its second meeting of 2022. Rick and Laura Pedersen of Pedersen Farms in Seneca Castle will host on April 12th at 10 AM. The farm is located at 11798 County Road 4, Seneca Castle, NY.

Pedersen Farms is a family-owned farm located in the Central Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. It grows both conventional and organic vegetables and field crops. The meeting will include a tour of the machinery used at Pedersen Farm and the opportunity to view and ask questions pertaining to it. There will also be an after-lunch discussion about adapting to changing climate with Caroline Marschner from Cornell Weed Ecology and Management Laboratory.

Our timing of an April meeting was to safely allow for a fully in-person meeting by holding it mostly outside. We will have tables and chairs set up to allow for lunch. As usual with NYCO, there will be a pot-luck lunch. No need to register just bring your questions and a dish to pass.

We are hoping that we will be back to Jordan Hall in Geneva next year.
