The 2012 Central New York Farm Progress Show will be held Sept. 12-13 at the Len-Lo Farm on Robinson Road in Mohawk, N.Y. The 2012 event continues to grow in both the number of participating exhibitors and the folks coming to enjoy the show. The show features over 100 exhibitors, offering products and services relevant to all aspects of the agricultural community, with attendance between 8,000 and 10,000 people. The main show takes place over approximately 10 acres, with over 40 acres in use featuring field demonstrations and fun activities.

The show provides an essential service to the agricultural community, and the farm show committee, a volunteer endeavor comprised of many hardworking individuals, is proud to provide this service.

The CNY Farm Progress Show is a nonprofit organization; as such, any excess funds generated by the show are used to fund youth scholarships and educational programs that will foster learning and involvement in the agricultural community.
