Lucky Dog will get it there...
Earlier this year, Lucky Dog Organic Farm and the Center for Agricultural Development and Entrepreneurship partnered to assess the need and potential for a local food hub. Meetings were held with both buyers and producers and planning progressed based on expressed interest from both sides. Today, local farms are beginning to use the Food Hub. For example, Milk Not Jails wanted Cowbella products for their CSA but transportation would have been an issue had the Lucky Dog Local Food Hub not been able to make the connection! Now Cowbella is sending product to Milk Not Jails' CSA weekly.

New York City buyers are looking for Upstate products. If you are a mid-size farmer looking to grow your operation and expand into new markets, take a few minutes to visit the Food Hub's new webpage where you'll:
  • learn more about the transportation and delivery options available and  
  • discover six buyers looking to purchase from your farm today!
If you have questions or would like to discuss your opportunities in more detail, contact Rebecca Morgan at or 607-433-2545.

PS:  The Food and Health Network is currently exploring opportunities for institutional procurement. On Thursday, June 25th, from 2 to 4 p.m., Lucky Dog Farm will host a tour followed by a discussion of the role of food hubs in "farm to institution." This meeting is open to the public!
