Ethan Grundberg grew up in eastern Iowa. After graduating from college he spent a year working in the northern coffee-growing region of Nicaragua where he honed his Spanish. He then moved to NYC to provide a community garden network some horticultural support. Ethan returned to academia to pursue his Master's degree at the University of California, Davis specializing in agroecology and vegetable production. While there, he managed some of the university's certified organic research land and provided instruction in safe equipment use to student employees. Upon graduation, Ethan returned east to work for the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project. Most recently, Ethan worked as the farm manager at Allandale Farm, a 40 acre diversified vegetable farm in eastern Massachusetts that sold produce through a 400 member CSA, a roadside stand, and restaurants in the Boston area. He, his wife, and their three-year-old son are excited to call the Hudson Valley their new home. Ethan will be based out of the CCE Orange County office in Middletown.

Resources from CCE ENYCHP!

We are developing new ways to connect with the CCE ENYCHP team this year! We have a Youtube page located at this link. Check out videos on Table Grape Production, Pest Updates and the 20 Minute Ag Manager - in 4 Minutes series

We have a Facebook Page here as well as an Instagram page. We keep these places updated with current projects, events, and other interesting articles and deadlines.

There are also text alerts available. Fruit and vegetable farmers in 17 Eastern NY counties can now receive real time alerts on high risk disease and pest outbreaks texted directly to their cell phone. The Eastern NY Commercial Horticulture program, which is supported by local Cornell Cooperative Extension associations, will now offer text alerts to those that enroll in our program in 2019. 

The text alerts will be reserved for important crop alerts that could impact management decisions immediately. For instance, if there were an outbreak of Late Blight in the area, this would be transmitted to vegetable growers.

Farmers can choose the crop for which they wish to receive updates. Additionally they can request that Ag Business Alerts be sent to them. These alerts might include due dates for crop insurance deadlines, market opportunities etc.

If you have questions, please contact enychp@cornell.edu
