Growing the leaders of the new farm movement

EFI offers educational opportunities in sustainable farming in the Adirondacks and North Country, NY.  We are working with regional farmers, educational professionals, and agricultural leaders to provide a broad range of educational opportunities to farmers based on the needs of sustainable, diversified farms in our region. We aim to teach farmers of all abilities the skills they need in a variety of diversified for-profit farm environments – from mowing to management to marketing. Each training seeks to respond to the immediate expressed needs of our area farmers.


Support and promote farming as a viable profession, ensuring a bright future for local food
