How to Buy Local Meat

Cornell Cooperative Extension Center
480 North Main Street, Canandaigua, NY 14424
 Canandaigua, NY- With all the excitement about local foods, many people are discovering the option of buying their meat locally. Many of us, however, are confused by claims like “grass-fed, “natural” and “organic” not to mention all of the different cuts of meat.
 Cornell Cooperative Extension is hosting a free class as an introduction to buying locally raised meat. The class will include an overview of the claims and terms used in meat marketing. There will also be an Ontario County farmer panel including those that raise lamb, beef and pork local meats.  This class is directed to consumers who are looking for education and information about buying locally raised meats. Buyers and culinary enthusiasts are welcome as well.
 Matt LeRoux, Cornell Cooperative Extension Agriculture Marketing Specialist from Tompkins County will be leading the class. He is a Farm Marketing Specialist with Cornell's South Central NY Regional Ag Team and has led many workshops focused on effective marketing skills for farms in addition to publishing guides such as the recent “Guide to Marketing Channels”. He has hosted workshops on How to Buy Local Meat and Local Meat Fairs in Tompkins County.
 Admission is free for this class.
 Pre-registration is required by September 4, 2012 by calling Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ontario County at 585.394.3977 x427 or email Nancy at nea8@cornell.edu with your name, address and phone number.
