CADE consultant Krys Cail carried out a feasibility study for connecting farmers and consumers and bringing good food into the food desert area in Northern and Central Binghamton. Read executive summary and final report here. This feasibility study was supported by the Wallace Healthy Urban Food Enterprise Development (HUFED) Center.
Although New York State and most of the Northeast have not historically been known as major beef producing areas, our geography and climate are well suited for growing grass and ruminant animals like cattle and sheep.
Since 1950 over 5000 dairy farms have gone out of business.As a result there is a tremendous amount of fallow land available for grazing beef and producing winter forages (over 3 million acres in New York State alone).
Many new livestock farmers and former dairy farmers are taking advantage of this regional ability to grow grass and are producing quality animals for consumption. CADE connects consumers with local and regional beef producers.
