Are you a new animal fiber producer looking for additional information on what species and breed of animal to raise, and how to produce, use, or market your animal’s fiber? Then the New York State Fiber Conference is perfect for you! Producers and potential producers from New York State and throughout the Northeast US are welcome to attend. Participants will leave with a better understanding of what they can do with their animal fiber or its value-added products to increase its market value; whether marketed through direct-to-consumer channels, commodity markets or wholesale. In addition to the panel presentations and conference sessions there will be time to explore the CNY Festival and meet vendors.
Make your farms and grazing management more resilient to short and long-term changes in climate, economics, soil health, consumer preferences, and more. Speakers include Shannon Hayes, Hugh Aljoe, Greg Brann, and there will be hands-on learning, farmer panels, and farm tours. More details coming soon, mark your calendars! LEARN MORE
