Cornell Cooperative Extension provides the local community within this county a range of agricultural knowledge and resources through various outreach services and programs. Our area is unique as it encompasses urban, suburban and rural settings which all host a variety of agricultural activities. Area farmers provide meat, vegetable, fruit and dairy products. The whole family can enjoy these local gems from businesses, offering an array of services such as U-pick and farm tours to watching maple syrup being made. The positive impacts from buying local are immense! For more on this visit our Agritourism page.
