 With new state laws allowing for so-called farm breweries in New York,  Cornell Cooperative Extension Ag Specialist Jim Ochterski forecasts a boom in barley production locally.         

This a good area to grow barley. Demand however hasn't been high in recents years.

Soil and water conditions in Finger Lakes are good for barley.
