The farmers’ megamall is back! Whatever you need to improve your farm, you’ll find it at the Northeast’s largest indoor farm equipment show, New York Farm Show.
The event is set for Feb. 22-24 at the New York State Fairgrounds.
Over the next few weeks, American Agriculturist will be highlighting educational seminars, special events and more than 40 new products at this year’s show. But here is a little teaser of what will be in Syracuse this year:
Featured will be more than 40 new products, including the new DJI Agras T40, a state-of-the-art spray drone that has a 10.5-gallon liquid tank and a 110-pound capacity granular tank; the T8088 Ag Bagger from RCI that features a 104-inch rotor and 12-foot tunnel with no backstop or cables; the new PS6138 PowerSpread manure spreader from H&S Manufacturing Co., which has a 373-cubic-foot heaped capacity and patented flighting for a far more even spread pattern; and much more.
Twenty-seven new exhibitors will showcase their products and services.
Educational seminars will focus on forestry, and a reimagined beef exhibit is planned.
As always, there will be free parking with a shuttle bus service running daily to each exhibit building. Tickets to the show are free if you request them by Feb. 15. Otherwise, the cost is only $5.
Show hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

BOOTH VISITORS: More than 300 New York Farm Show visitors took part in the American Agriculturist gift card giveaway contest last year. Entrants were asked a series of questions about their goals for the 2023 growing season, and the effects of farm policy on their operations.
Tickets are available for free from your Northeast Equipment Dealers Association member or by writing to New York Farm Show, P.O. Box 3470, Syracuse, NY 13220. Include a self-addressed stamped envelope with your request received by Feb. 15. Otherwise, tickets are $5 at the door.
New York Farm Show is the leading farm show in the Northeast and has been held since 1985. It is co-presented by American Agriculturist and Northeast Equipment Dealers Association.

Editor, American Agriculturist
Chris Torres, editor of American Agriculturist, previously worked at Lancaster Farming, where he started in 2006 as a staff writer and later became regional editor. Torres is a seven-time winner of the Keystone Press Awards, handed out by the Pennsylvania Press Association, and he is a Pennsylvania State University graduate.
Torres says he wants American Agriculturist to be farmers' "go-to product, continuing the legacy and high standard (former American Agriculturist editor) John Vogel has set." Torres succeeds Vogel, who retired after 47 years with Farm Progress and its related publications.
"The news business is a challenging job," Torres says. "It makes you think outside your small box, and you have to formulate what the reader wants to see from the overall product. It's rewarding to see a nice product in the end."
Torres' family is based in Lebanon County, Pa. His wife grew up on a small farm in Berks County, Pa., where they raised corn, soybeans, feeder cattle and more. Torres and his wife are parents to three young boys.
