Technology Farm to hold event

The Cornell Agriculture & Food Technology Park, also called the Technology Farm, will hold an open house from 4 to 7 p.m. March 11.

Executive Director Susan Noble said the facility is near capacity.

“Over the past decade, much time, effort and capital has been invested in the Technology Farm and it has come a long way from the original apple orchard to become the home for a variety of new companies that are growing and creating an increasing number of new jobs,” Noble said in a statement.

Opened in 2006, the park is a 72-acre site in Geneva, Ontario County that enables collaboration among Cornell University faculty and the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station.

The site aims to create businesses and jobs from commercialized technologies in agriculture, food and bio-based industries.
