OCCCE’s mission is to provide relevant, accessible, research-based information to grow confident youth and successful farms & gardens for a strong and healthy Orleans community. We achieve this mission through partnerships with our community, Cornell University, and the national Cooperative Extension system, and by investing in resources that directly benefit our agricultural producers. Each year, our $90,000 investment in the Lake Ontario Fruit Program, Cornell Vegetable Program, and Northwestern NY Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Team gives our county access to $1.6 million in staff, research, and resources to improve the economic vitality of our agricultural community.
Producers can capitalize on this investment by enrolling in our agricultural programs. Enrollment provides immediate access to cutting-edge research, weather data, and economic information that can make the difference between an average year and an exceptional one. It is an investment that will reap rewards for many years to come.
Enrollment benefits include:
