CHENANGO COUNTY – In an effort to promote home-grown foods, the Chenango County Agriculture Development Council will open a new exhibit at this year’s County Fair that gives people a chance to taste all that Chenango County has to offer.
The exhibit, appropriately named “Farm to Fork: A Taste of Chenango,” will feature fresh produce, product displays, and tastings of foods that are made right in Chenango County. Organizers say it’s the perfect chance for growers and producers to showcase or sell their product at the single largest county event of the year.
“Our goal is to get multiple vendors there who are producing locally grown products, whether it’s fruits, vegetables, maple syrup, cheese, or any other product that people can eat,” explained Emily Anderson, ADC’s Farm to Fork coordinator. “Each vendor will have their own little booth where people can visit and see how local vendors are doing, and the vendors will be able to sell their product.”
