Ontario County is fortunate to be home to numerous local farms that produce a variety of unique foods. We want the public to know about and connect with our many farms, which is why Cornell Cooperative Extension publishes the Ontario County Buy Local Guide each year.
The local guide is a representation of the diversity of the producers providing you a farm fresh direct to you experience. This guide is not a complete listing of Ontario County's producers that sell locally, only those that wished to be listed. The guide will allow you to find local farms based on location and product. Be sure to start here for our guide to Ontario County farms!
If you are a farm located in Ontario County, or that sells product in Ontario County and would like to be listed in our Buy Local Guide please contact Nancy Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no charge to be listed in the Buy Local Guide.
Farmers' markets are a tradition as old as agriculture itself and Ontario County currently has eight community-based farmers' markets. Find a list of local markets here!
Community Supported Agriculture or CSA is a food production and distribution system that directly connects farmers and consumers. Find a list of local CSA's here.
Farm to School is a program that puts food from local farms directly into school lunch rooms, providing student with fresh nutritious foods and educating them about where their food comes from.
