Join the Finger Lakes Grape Program for one of their Tailgate meetings in 2024! 

Tailgate Meetings are a time for growers and the FLGP staff to discuss what’s going on in the vineyards, ask questions, and learn from each other. There is no set agenda for the most part, so bring questions, observations, thoughts, etc., and let’s talk about them. 

Each meeting has been approved for 1.5 pesticide recertification credits by DEC.

About the Finger Lakes Grape Program:

The Finger Lakes Grape Program is a regional agricultural extension program of Cornell Cooperative Extension. We provide unbiased, research-based information on the region’s grape New York State map showing six FLGP counties growers in areas including vineyard and pest management practices, new vineyard establishment, farm business management, marketing and business development and more as a means of supporting the industry’s growth and long-term sustainability. This information is distributed to growers by a variety of means, including printed and electronic communications, field meetings and workshops, and an annual winter conference.

The Finger Lakes Grape Program is supported, in part, by six county Cornell Cooperative Extensions: Ontario, Seneca, Schuyler, Steuben, Wayne, and Yates Counties.
