OSWEGO CO., N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County (CCE Oswego) is delighted to announce that a fourth edition of the popular Oswego County Harvest Guide is in development and expected to be released in late summer this year. Produced by CCE Oswego, the Oswego County Harvest Guide serves as the county’s directory of local farms, farmers’ markets, and agricultural products.
The Harvest Guide offers a unique and wonderful opportunity for local agricultural businesses to communicate their presence to new and existing customers. Using an accessible, distinctive list-and-map format, the guide colorfully outlines participating businesses’ products, locations, contact information, and more. It is prominently displayed and offered year-round to visitors of county events, our office, and the offices of partner organizations.
Since its creation several years ago, the Harvest Guide has proven to be a favorite among the public, with copies moving fast and multiple printings being necessary. Local agricultural businesses who engage in direct-to-consumer sales are encouraged to register to be included for a fee of $39 and will be provided with copies to display and hand out at farmers’ markets and their shops and farm stands.
The Oswego County Harvest Guide is an ongoing project that represents CCE Oswego’s commitment to increase public awareness of, and access to, local Oswego County agriculture and food. For more information about the Oswego County Harvest Guide, or if you operate an agricultural business in Oswego County and are interested in being included, please contact Erich Keena, Ag Economic Development Specialist, at 315-963-7286 ext. 203 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Look for the new edition this summer and fall at local farmers’ markets, county events and organization offices, and the CCE Oswego office in Mexico, NY. Additionally, a pdf version and list of participating producers will be available on CCE Oswego’s website, thatscooperativeextension.org.
