About Essex Farm Institute
The mission of the Essex Farm Institute (EFI) is to support, promote and train farmers to build resilient, diversified farms that are economically viable, socially responsible and environmentally beneficial.
EFI is a voice and a resource for farms in the Adirondacks of New York State.
