NORWICH – “CNY Bounty is proud to announce that its innovative, home-delivery, local food program has made over 10,000 home deliveries” according to Steven Holzbaur, CNY Bounty Program Coordinator. The deliveries have occurred in Chenango, Madison, Broome and now Onondaga Counties. “This is tremendous news not only for our customers that are receiving locally produced, farm fresh products but for our local small farmers and producers as well. Revenue for the program is fast approaching the $500,000 mark with $364,000 going directly back to the local farmers that participate in the program.”
This is encouraging news for the small farmer that is providing fresh, organically produced foods and who has many challenges competing with large agribusiness and supermarket pricing. Adam Perrin, owner of Quarry Brook farms in Sherburne states “CNY Bounty is providing a unique and essential component of a local sustainable food system through the direct connection of consumers and producers. When you order from CNY Bounty you get the healthiest food and you help keep local farmers and producers in business”. Quarry Brook Farms offers certified naturally grown, grass-fed beef, lamb, pork, chicken, eggs along with pesticide-free produce on the CNY Bounty website.
