Program Description
CFAP (formerly the Farming Alternatives Program) was established in 1986 to assist farm families in developing profitable new agricultural enterprises and marketing strategies. Since that time, the program has broadened its focus to develop ways that communities can be built, sustained and strengthened by agriculture and food systems; thus enabling farmers, processors, and other community members to meet their sustenance and social needs through largely local, democratic, and entrepreneurial processes.

CFAP conducts both theoretical and applied research and has an active Extension program through conferences, in-service training, leadership development activities, and publications. Program activities foster collaborative relationships with faculty, staff, and students from across the college of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Human Ecology, and with partner organizations around the state and region.

CFAP is housed in the Department of Development Sociology in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University. Education programs, research, and other activities are conducted throughout New York State.
