Summer in the Finger Lakes is the perfect season to enjoy local, freshly grown produce. For many, the taste of ripe, just-harvested fruit and vegetables is reason enough to seek out local food. Getting to know and experience the farms your food comes from is another reason to appreciate local food. Fortunately, discovering new farms is easy with the 2018 Ontario County Local Food Guide.
Each year Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ontario County identifies local farmers who wish to be included in the Local Food Guide. The Ontario County Local Food Guide provides an easy to use reference to local farms that have U-Pick, farm stands, and CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture). The Ontario County Local Food Guide also includes farmers’ markets, Ontario County made specialty products like jams and mustards, and farm vendors from outside the county that sell products in Ontario County. The 2018 Ontario County Food Guide includes 46 listings; with so many farms there’s a good chance even experienced local food buyers will find new farms to explore. The Ontario County Local Food Guide is available for viewing and download on the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ontario County website, www.cceontario.org The guide will also be available at Ontario County farmers’ markets while supplies last. Be sure to get your copy today for your guide to a summer full of local food, farms, and fun!
