JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (May 15, 2023) -- Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County’s Agriculture Program wants to remind everyone about the local Chautauqua Grown producers this spring.
Spring is in the air and affecting all five of the senses, the sweet smell of soil being prepared for planting, animals tasting the new spring grass, birds and bees chirping and buzzing pollinating and feasting on the early spring bugs and flowers, the wind whirling or sun shining, and the calming sound of a good spring rain. All these things point to one of the busiest times of the year for local producers of all kinds.
Chautauqua Grown has increased in size in the last year and offers everything from eggs, honey, maple, produce, to pork, beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, and everything in between! All Chautauqua Grown producers have farm goods that are grown and produced right here in Chautauqua County so we can easily cut out the middleman!
Check out or new Facebook group “Chautauqua Grown” found at this link: https://www.facebook.com/Chautauqua.Grown.Chautauqua.County. Here you will find the producers that are on Facebook and all their updates on what they have available in one easy location.
Right now, asparagus is coming into season and strawberries will be quick to follow! I hope everyone is as ready and excited for the growing season as we all are! If you need help in finding a local producer, feel free to reach out to our Agriculture Coordinator, Cassandra at firstname.lastname@example.org or 716-664-9502 ext. 202!
