Broome County’s diverse agricultural and horticulture industry encompasses over one-third of the county land mass with businesses in every town and municipality. Direct sales of local products generate $30.7 million annually which translates into $100 million community dollars as well as direct employment of 900 people and indirect support of community businesses.
Agriculture in the county continues to change with a decrease in traditional dairy farms which is offset by the growth of farms marketing a diverse range of products such as vegetables, fruits, meats, poultry, fiber products, timber products, maple syrup, and other specialty farm items.
