GREENWICH — Against a backdrop of declining farmland statewide, a free workshop geared toward farmers and other landowners will take place in Greenwich Wednesday.
“We’re doing a series of workshops to help educate rural landowners,” said Meegan Finnegan, program manager at the Agricultural Stewardship Association. The forum, co-sponsored by the ASA and the Washington County Soil & Water Conservation District, will provide information on land management and financial options that may be available to landowners, Finnegan said.
Washington County’s farm economy produces more than $100 million in farm product sales annually, according to the 2007 census. The census also showed that, from 1997 to 2007, New York state farmland declined by 613,500 acres.
