Horseradish

Horseradish Horseradish is a minor crop in New York, with 5 acres produced on 8 farms (2007 Ag Census). Some of the smaller acreage is probably not reported. It is a member of the Brassicaceae or cabbage family which makes it related to turnips. The greens are edible and may be available at farmers markets in the spring/summer. However, the pungent root is generally what is cultivated and sold. Roots are generally harvested in the fall. They store well and are available throughout the winter.

Video: New York State Produce Auctions

Currently, there are 8 produce auctions in New York State. These auctions are aggregation points that allow local farmers to sell their produce in wholesale lots to buyers from across the region. To document the economic impact of produce auctions on agriculture, local businesses, family farms, and produce buyers, the Cornell Vegetable Program worked with Harvest New York to survey top sellers and buyers.

A new Cornell Vegetable Program video shares general information about produce auctions, how buyers and sellers use the auctions to expand their businesses, and how local communities benefit from them.

The final Women in Agriculture (WAVES) meeting, focused on auxiliary farm income, will be held Monday, November 11, 2019 at Burley's Berries and Blooms in Warsaw.

Our host, Megan Burley, runs a creative and diversified farm that uses the existing farm infrastructure and landscape assets to augment her business's primary strawberry and cut flower income. Megan will teach participants how to use farm products to craft unique, value added fall and winter wreaths to extend your marketing season and supplement your farm product offerings.

Tarping for Reduced Tillage Workshop

Are you a vegetable farmer already using tarps? Or are you wondering if and how tarps could work best on your farm?

The Cornell Small Farms Program is offering a series of workshops on tarping for reduced tillage in Maine and New York this fall. Join a full-day intensive, farmer-to-farmer workshop to talk about how to use tarps for reduced and no-till vegetable production. They'll discuss tillage, weeds, and how to combine tarps with soil building practices -- like compost, mulches, and cover crops. You will learn from farmers as they share their successes and failures and hear research results from five years of tarping trials testing no-till practices side-by-side with conventional management. Join them to share your own methods and walk away with a plan to use tarps with less tillage on your farm. Read more about this event.

In WNY, the workshop will be held
Monday, November 18 at CCE Ontario County, 480 N Main St, Canandaigua, NY 14424 from 9:00am-4:00pm. Cost: $35 per person includes lunch and refreshments. Space is limited. Register now
