Program Description
The New Farmer Development Project (NFDP) is a partnership between the Council on the Environment’s Greenmarket program and Cornell University Cooperative Extension’s New York City Program. The project identifies, educates, and supports immigrants in New York City with agricultural experience to become local producers and establish small farms in the region. They currently have approximately 20 new farmers growing produce on project training farms, established local farms with mentor farmers, and their own independent farm operations.
