Northern New York’s dairy industry is the mainstay of the agricultural and regional economies of the region. More than 1,000 NNY dairy farms supply fluid milk for the bottling of milk and the making of cheese, yogurt and other dairy products. The region also has several dairy processing plants providing jobs and supporting local communities.
Northern New York Agricultural Development Program small grants projects support research, education and technical assistance to help the region’s dairy farms be more efficient, sustainable, profitable, and good natural resource stewards.
