Buffalo City Auction: Advice for Buyers

Saturday, May 23  10:00 am – 10:45 am


Cornell Cooperative Extension of Erie County (CCE Erie) is hosting two on-line workshops for anyone looking for a place to start an urban farm or market garden in the City of Buffalo. Each session will include a presentation and time for questions.

The second session is entitled "Buffalo City Auction - Advice for Buyers"

Finding affordable land is a major challenge for new farmers. The estimated value of a farm in Erie County surged from just over $400,000 in 2012 to nearly $700,000 in 2017 (2017 Census of Agriculture: New York). Property values in the City of Buffalo have been on the rise too, but there are still bargains to be had at the City of Buffalo auction. The ins and outs of the auction will be discussed by Amhad Nieves of the Buffalo Information Sharing Collaborative.

This workshop is part of CCE Erie’s work as a Regional Navigator in American Farmland Trust’s Farmland for a New Generation program (FNG-NY). The focal point of the FNG-NY program is the New York Farmland Finder, a website that helps link farmers seeking land and landowners who want to keep their land in farming. Website users can post a farmer or farm profile, search for farmers or farmland, learn about upcoming events and browse resources.
