Cornell Cooperative Extension moving its operations at Tilly Foster Farm

Cornell Cooperative Extension will be moving its operations at Tilly Foster Farm in Putnam County.  The organization is renovating the building at no cost to the county and will host is 4-H Youth, Master Gardener and other community programs there. It also helped secure a grant for a creamery and plans to use the commercial kitchen to jar vegetables and honey.  The group’s Pollinator Pathway at the farm has already helped keep the county blooming, and it has increased production in the newly expanded garden by 40 percent. That boost enabled the county to open a farm stand to the public this year, in addition to providing produce to the Tilly’s Table restaurant and to the lunch program at the county’s Office for Senior Resources.  The farm-to-market restaurant on the property, also operates an event space in the barn for weddings, bridal showers and other occasions.  All but two Saturdays in 2022 are already booked.
