Agriculture

Agriculture represents the second largest economic sector in Sullivan County with a combined output value exceeding $68,000,000 (2010). Farms create direct economic benefits, provide our residents with fresh local foods, support other local businesses across many sectors, and preserve the rural character that our residents and visitors value so highly. Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Sullivan County supports local agriculture by providing resources for farmers and consumers, helping strengthen the local and regional food systems.
