Farm Financial Viability and Tomato Tasting

August 24 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Join NOFA-NY and the Young Farmers Coalition of Western New York at Dirt Rich Farm for a two-part event: an educational presentation about making a living in farming at 4:30 pm, followed by a tomato tasting at 6:00 pm. You’re welcome to attend just one portion of the event or come for the whole thing!

What does it take to make a living from farming? At 4:30, farmers Laura Colligan and Ryan Leggio will talk about the history of Dirt Rich Farm, which Laura started in 2015, and how they grew the farm business to the point where they were finally able to make a living from farming without off-farm jobs by 2021. Dirt Rich Farm is a Certified Organic vegetable farm with two acres in production, growing for a 150 member CSA, a farmers market, a farm stand, and sales to local businesses. You’ll also hear from USDA NRCS about programs that support small and beginning farmers and NOFA-NY Certified Organic, LLC about organic certification.
