Join us for the 5th Annual Countywide Farmers Market. Grown on Long Island Day will be held on Friday, August 7 from 10am to 2pm at the Suffolk County Farm in Yaphank.
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County assists and educates residents, businesses and professionals in a broad spectrum of topics by providing research-based information on parenting, diabetes management, nutrition and wellness, horticulture, environmental protection, marine restoration and sustainable agriculture.
Experts from our four main program areas—Family Health and Wellness, Marine, Agriculture and 4-H Youth Development—reach tens of thousands of adults, children, professionals and businesses each year.
We bring this free and low-cost knowledge directly to people at workshops, children’s camps, libraries and schools. We also work one-on-one with fisherman, farmers and growers to strengthen these industries, bringing tourism and advancing economic development. CCE programs have had a significant impact on communities and industry in Suffolk for nearly a century.
The SNAP-ED Nutrition Education - Eat Smart New York program tries to improve health and reduce chronic disease for low-income adults and youth.
