HOMEGROWN- The 21 Century Family Farm

We have set the new date for March 12 from 7pm to 9pm at the Silver Spoon Cafe. 323 Owego Street, Unit #7 Montour Falls NY 14865.

Please come out and help support the Schuyler Counties community garden projects!!


Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben and Schuyler Counties held their first "locally grown foods festival" on February 19th in Corning. The event was a huge success and demonstrates the fact that people are increasingly interested in buying local. Informative gatherings such as this one are trying to reduce the negative trends of the US now importing more food than it produces and the average “food mile” of dinner being 1500 miles.
