EARLVILLE – The Chenango and Madison Bounty programs celebrated a milestone Tuesday night, reaching the $100,000 sales mark.
The Chenango Bounty program began in November of 2007 with a specific goal in mind: to bring food from local producers to local consumers. A project of the Chenango Ag Development Council, Chenango Bounty created a one stop shop for consumers to order products directly from local sources. Through Bounty, the foods are delivered to your door at no additional cost. According to Phil Metzger, USDA’s RC&D coordinator, the program aims to get products to consumers from the closest local source.
Last night, the Chenango and Madison Bounty programs held a celebration in honor of reaching a milestone. A food tasting and business meeting was held at the Poolville Country Store in Earlville.
