Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County serves as a link and resource for beginning farmers and those requiring a high level of expertise. Educators work with area residents interested in agriculture, farmers and agribusinesses to provide the latest agricultural developments and innovative technologies at Cornell University and other research institutions.
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County is unique among local organizations and businesses in offering continued educational resources, enabling the agricultural staff to address food system issues in an all-inclusive manner. Educators work at a food-system level allowing for a more effective response to cross-cutting needs such as food safety, food access, local agriculture and community infrastructure. We offer resources for farmers, and consumers, to help strengthen our local and regional food systems.
