America Needs a New Foodshed;
New York is the Answer

Phoebe Schreiner

Food for Thought,
Thoughts for Food

Try to imagine a future without farms in New York State. It’s a bleak image that Phoebe Schneider hopes will never become a reality. To that end, she has been instrumental in working to ensure that farms and farmers continue to produce food and thrive in the years to come.
Schreiner, who will speak at the Cazenovia Forum Friday, November 12 at 7 p.m. via Zoom, is executive director of the Center for Agricultural Development and Entrepreneurship.

She, along with others, has cited many challenges to the future of food production in New York, among them shrinking farmland, increasing numbers of farmers retiring with no successors, climate change, inadequate protection of labor, decreasing capacity and inefficiencies in processing and distribution, and lack of a common direction among food system stakeholders.

“Agriculture is at the center of the Upstate economy,” she said describing her work as a member of U.S. Rep. Antonio Delgado’s 19th Congressional District Agriculture Advisory Committee. “It’s important that our elected officials, regardless of party, pay close attention to realities on the ground and what’s at stake for farmers in the district.”
