Agriculture

Centrally located in the Mid-Hudson/Catskill region of New York State, Ulster County is home to a diverse array of agricultural enterprises and a long agricultural history. The fertile valleys of Ulster County have been cultivated for over 700 years, and the region was one of the earliest major agricultural areas in the United States, producing food for local populations, New York City, and export markets.  Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County has been a leader in providing technical assistance and training to farmers in the County since 1913.
