Our mission is to help farms and agribusinesses build committed and effective teams who will carry out the important work of feeding the world. We believe that agricultural work can, and should be, engaging and rewarding for everyone involved. Managers can build committed teams by applying the best human resource management practices for the agricultural setting.
Initial program goals include:
New York Forward is the state’s plan to begin re-opening in phases as regions of the state achieve certain COVID-19 management metrics. An important part of New York Forward is for all businesses to have a customized, written safety plan that details specifically how each business will prevent and manage COVID-19.
A statewide task force of Cornell Cooperative Extension professionals, who collectively are familiar with the many different types of enterprises and complexity of agricultural businesses in New York, have developed tools to assist farmers with meeting this state mandate to protect the people associated with your business.
