Event Details

Each year CCE Ulster hosts the New and Beginning Farmer Series, a collection of 1 hour workshops that help new and aspiring farmers get started. All Classes will be held online via Zoom. On April 7 from 2pm-3pm CCE Ulster hosts the seminar “How to Make a Profit and Still Have a Good Quality of Life”.

Steve Hadcock, of the Capital Area Agriculture and Horticulture Program, will talk about the business of getting started in farming, focusing on the quality of life of farmers. It’s important for farmers to find a balance between work (i.e. farming) and life (i.e. their family). All too often, farmers think that if they open another location (e.g. farm stand) or plant more crops, that they will see increased profits. Steve will explain how that concept isn’t always correct, and that farmers may be losing money, as well as quality of life (i.e., missing out on family time).
