Farming Status and Plans

Farming status:

Not currently farming

Description of farming status, plans, and practices:

We are a malthouse and farm brewery. We don't currently grow anything ourselves, but NYS Ag and markets does consider us a "farm operation" for land use purposes etc. we source 100% of our ingredients from local farms and are looking to develop a farmstead ag tourism location where some additional fruits/botanicals/smaller grain plots can be grown and the public can interact with our unique "grain-to-Glass" process.

Does this farmer have a business plan?
