New Video Helps to Promote the Work of the CVPMany people in our community are not aware of the size or the impact of the Western New York vegetable industry on the state’s economy. We decided to do something about that! The Cornell Vegetable Program is proud to release a video that highlights vegetable production in our region – from fresh market to processing, from farms that are several thousand acres to just a few, from biodynamic growers to conventional – and provides an introduction to our team of Vegetable Specialists and how we assist growers in this area. We greatly appreciate that several WNY vegetable growers shared their thoughts on what the Cornell Vegetable Program means to them: Paul Fenton, Batavia; Mark Zittel, Eden; and Matt Mortellaro, Elba. The video was produced by Cornell videographer, James Monahan. Watch the video and leave us a comment!
