Yellow Wood Associates, Inc. worked with the Essex County Farmland Protection Board to develop a plan for farmland protection based on a strategic analysis of opportunities to strengthen agriculture in Essex County. Work included a survey of farmers and farmland owners, economic and demographic research, visioning sessions and focus groups, and preparation of a strategic plan, including spatial analysis and geographic displays. Yellow Wood Associates, Inc. led a team including the Farming Alternatives Program of Cornell University and R.J. Turner Company of Vermont.
I like the final product. You ran good meetings. They were well prepared and the right people were there. The work was done on time. - Bernard Leerkes, Farmer and Member of the Essex County Farmland Protection Board
