Northern NY growers produce a wide range of horticultural crops: fruits, cold-hardy grapes & wines, vegetables, ornamentals, and greenhouse crops. The region enjoys ever-increasing consumer interest in local foods and locally-grown crops. The farmer-driven Northern New York Agricultural Development Program has funded projects to advance the use of season extension production techniques for growing everything from salad greens and tomatoes to berries and fresh-cut flowers; to investigate and now support food hub development; and to establish and recently to revitalize the cold hardy grape research nursery at the Cornell University Willsboro Research Farm in Willsboro on Lake Champlain.
