January 9, 2025 is our 193rd Annual Forum!

Our Annual Forum is THE family reunion of the NY agricultural and food industry. Each January stakeholders  converge in Syracuse to discuss issues, emerging opportunities and to network. In 2024 our theme was "Harnessing Regenerative Agriculture." While it lacks a consistent definition or measuring stick, one of its biggest potential benefits—and the one with the most interest from researchers and businesses alike—is its ability to combat climate change. Should the NY farm community be paying more attention? The Forum is sponsored by CALS at Cornell University, the NYS Ag Society Foundation, the NYS Department of Agriculture & Markets and Farm Credit East.
