Field Crop Production

Field crops play a smaller role in Ulster County’s agricultural economy, but hay crops still cover the majority of Ulster County’s total farmland acreage. Ulster county’s field crops also play an important role in supporting area livestock operations. There is also growing interest in local specialty small grains production in the Hudson Valley for supplying local bakers, brewers /distillers and livestock operations.
