The mission of NY FarmNet is to provide New York farm families with free, confidential consulting services to develop skills for improving financial and production efficiency, as well as overcoming business and family challenges.
The website presents an encouraging set of services to farm family visitors. It is also the management hub for the cadre of consultants and specialists who actually provide the services, usually at the farm. The core of the system is an online workflow management and scheduling system that allows the consultants to provide their services efficiently, and for Farmnet staff to track, manage and report on progress.
