Farming and Natural Resources
Ontario County is a rich and diverse agricultural area. Dairy, vegetables, fruit, beef, sheep, poultry, cash crops, vineyards, orchards, small fruit, nursery and greenhouse farms all play a significant role in the economy of Ontario County.
CCE provides many workshops, individual consulting, and fact sheets to help foster success and enjoyment in farming and rural land management.
