The second edition of the Oswego County Harvest Guide will debut at the upcoming Oswego County Fair, which runs from June 30 to July 4 in Sandy Creek.
Look for the Harvest Guide at the Cornell Cooperative Extension booth in the Agriculture Building on the south side of the fairgrounds.
The completion of the new Harvest Guide was the first project of the newly hired Agriculture Economic Development Specialist, Lynnette Wright.
She explained, “The Oswego County Harvest Guide is a directory and map of Oswego County farms and where consumers can buy fresh, local food and agricultural products including fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs and maple syrup. If you’re interested in learning more about where your food comes from there is no better way than to visit a farm and learn first-hand from the farmer!”
Use the Oswego County Harvest Guide to discover all the opportunities Oswego County Agriculture has to offer and unearth all the fresh and local harvest products available throughout the year.
This guide will help you make plans to visit an agricultural producer in Oswego County.
You can support and learn about local agriculture in a number of ways, including: touring a farm, picking your own fruit, pumpkins or Christmas tree, shopping at a farm stand, or buying local products at a farmers’ market.
The Oswego County Harvest Guide contains more than 50 local farms, ready to answer your questions and stocked with products grown and raised locally, in your backyard, Oswego County.
The Harvest Guide is brought to you by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County and your neighboring farmers with the support of the Oswego County Legislature.
