Since its inception in 1961, the GCSWCD has had a strong involvement in providing technical assistance to Greene County agricultural producers.
In recent years, the type of agriculture in Greene County has changed with fewer dairy operators. However, there has been an increase in smaller niche and part-time operators, maintaining a viable agricultural presence in the county.
The GCSWCD continues to consider the agricultural community a priority client, and works with a wide variety of local, state, and federal agencies to provide support and funding to local operators.
Along with technical assistance to Greene County agricultural producers, GCSWCD facilitates participation in the NYS Agricultural Assessment Program and NYS Agricultural Environmental Management. There are many other agricultural programs available through local, state, and federal agencies.
