Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chenango County enables people to improve their lives and communities through partnerships that put experience and knowledge to work.
The purpose of the Meat Producers Guide in Chenango County is to link consumers with meat producers in Chenango County, New York. Many of the producers can arrange to sell freezer beef in bulk, such as quarters, halves, and whole animals to consumers; some can provide individual cuts. Other types of meat are mentioned specifically. A typical method of purchasing, but not the only method, is to pay the producer a given price per pound hanging carcass weight, and then pay the processor separately for butchering, cutting and wrapping. Cornell Cooperative Extension does not endorse any given producer, but is merely sharing information given to us by the farmers/producers. Arrangements for sale of meat producers are strictly between the consumer and producer.

In this workshop educators will learn how to re-shape current lesson plans to engage a wide variety of learners using twenty-first century skills.
