A big thanks to everyone for their support of September’s Buy Local Month! We received a total of 253 pledges for local food in one month alone. The total dollars pledged added up to $181,027! Buy Local Month was also an opportunity to discuss Catskills farming with Commissioner of Agriculture Patrick Hooker, Assemblyman Pete Lopez and Assemblyman Cliff Crouch.
