Business Management

Business ManagementWhile many might think that growing grapes and running a winery sounds like a perfect way to live, the fact is that these are businesses that require good information to make decisions about production practices, labor, marketing, and more. The Finger Lakes Grape Program works with experts from Cornell, Penn State, and the private and non-profit sectors to bring this kind of information to growers.

Position Opening with Finger Lakes Grape Program

The FLGP is going to be hiring a new program assistant/technician in 2018. Gillian Trimber, our viticulture educator who has been with the Grape Program since September 2015, has decided to pursue some other opportunities, and will be leaving us at the end of December.

The new position will have a greater emphasis on assisting with field work than in the past, including setting up and maintaining field trials and demonstrations, data collection and data entry, and maintenance of the Teaching and Demonstration Vineyard. More information about the qualifications and duties of the position, along with information on how to apply, can be found at http://tiny.cc/ViticultureAideWDR0013103. The position will be posted until December 17, or until the position is filled. Please pass this information along to anybody that you think might be interested in the position.

Gillian will be helping us to finish up some final projects - including hosting a pruning workshop on Friday, December 8 (see Upcoming Events for more details) - and helping us to prepare for the transition to the new position. Her enthusiasm for Extension and the industry, her upbeat attitude, and her hard work have made her a tremendous asset for the Finger Lakes Grape Program over the past 2 years. I will miss having her as part of our team.
