Cornell Cooperative Extension Oneida County collects profile information from local farms in the area. The data will be incorporated into Oneida County’s first agriculture and food directory. The goal is to help increase farm gate sales and raise awareness of locally produced foods.

The agriculture and food directory will be sent to restaurants, markets, grocery stores, schools, food vendors and other places looking for local food products. Each farm and producer included in the directory will receive a two-page listing that highlights their history, products and services.

So if you are a local producer of vegetables, fruits, honey, animal protein…why wouldn’t you want to participate? It’s beneficial not only for you, but also for supporting local producers throughout central New York. It also promotes the health benefits of eating locally grown or raised produce.

Complete this survey created by CCE Oneida County to participate. Your listing should include logos, map locations, and photos (if available). If the link does not work, please feel free to email Sammi Collins at [email protected] for assistance or additional information.
