Agriculture

Our farmers have been providing crops for us for hundreds of years and Suffolk County is still the largest agricultural county in the state in terms of sales of product. The state’s largest county in horticultural sales and service industry.

The Agriculture Program is CCE’s original initiative, established in 1917 to provide research-based information to growers. Today home gardeners, commercial nurseries and viticulturists all turn to CCE for dependable information and new technologies.
