Farm to School Program

Together with local school districts and community partners Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County is planning and implementing farm to school programs with the ultimate goal of providing fresh, local, nutritious food, while simultaneously benefiting the community and local farmers. The impacts described on the right are a result of partnering with the Watertown City School District. More information can be found on their website at http://www.watertowncsd.org/webpages/tschool/index.cfm.

We welcome interested parents, school personnel, and community members to contact us about your school becoming involved in a similar initiative.
