live and work on a farm while studying agriculture, food sciences and
other related fields.
The State University of New York system on
Monday announced a partnership with the FarmOn! Foundation that’s meant
to give students hands-on experience in everything from planting the
seeds to cooking what they grow and serving it at catered events.
first participants will come from SUNY Cobleskill, Morrisville State
College and the Cornell University College of Agriculture and Life
Sciences. Participants will stay on a farm in Columbia County.
SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher says the partnership is the first of its kind.
