Building Resilience During COVID-19 Requires Deligence

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have worked with farmers to help build resilience for their businesses. In building resilience, we must also remain diligent in maintaining health and safety requirements. 

The NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets and the NYSDOH - New York State Health Department are reminding agritourism businesses that they must adhere to the COVID-19 New York Forward guidance. This comes in response to a recent outbreak associated with a NY agritourism farm. 

Learn more about the guidance agritourism farms are subject to, as well as our recommended management and communication strategies for agritourism activities on your farms as you navigate the COVID-19 outbreak at the Small Farms website.

We will continue to monitor the situation and keep in touch with you.
