Event Coming Up Oct. 9 in the Hudson Valley

From American Farmland Trust:

An announcement concerning the new Hudson Valley Farmlink Network is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Oct. 9 at the Wright Family Farm, 329 Kings Highway, Warwick, Orange County.

The Hudson Valley Farmlink Network is a new partnership dedicated to connecting farmers and owners of agricultural land and strengthening opportunities for agriculture and land conservation in the Hudson Valley.  

The network offers new resources for senior farmers, next generation farmers and non-farming owners of agricultural land – and features the new Hudson Valley Farmland Finder website, which will help connect farmers looking for land and landowners seeking to sell or lease their land for farming. 

Attending the Oct. 9 event will be farmers, local, state and federal officials such as Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, land conservation and agricultural organization representatives such as James Delaunes of the Orange County Land Trust and David Haight, state director of American Farmland Trust.
