Farm Disaster Preparation Certificate Program Feb. 7

C ornell Cooperative Extension will host a Farm Disaster Preparation Certificate workshop from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 7, at Farm Family, 344 Route 9 W in Glenmont.

Every farm that completes the workshop will receive a dated certificate to provide to their insurer. The certificate may be a condition of eligibility for receiving a more favorable farm insurance policy review or a discount on the farm’s annual insurance premium.

The cost of the workshop is $35 per person and is open to farms of all types and sizes.
