Oswego County farmers provide a wide variety of products to residents through grocery stores, farm stands and farmers’ markets.

It is important that people understand how food goes from the farm to their table, so second-grade classes across the state welcomed volunteers to read a book with an agricultural theme and provide hands-on lessons.
