NYS Clean

Cornell Cooperative Extension offices across the Hudson Valley and New York State are distributing FREE hand sanitizer and face coverings to farm businesses helping to ensure clean, safe food production, harvesting, and distribution. Hand sanitizer is available in gallon containers with hand pumps (it's a powerful pump, press gently!) and face coverings in packages of five while supplies last. The products are provided free of charge, thanks to New York State Ag and Markets who’ve provided the supplies. *Please contact the County Extension where your farm business is located for these free supplies! To find contact information for your local County Extension office visit cce.cornell.edu.

COVID19 is creating hardships and challenging times for so many members of our community. It’s important that we keep our local food systems supported during this time and Cornell Extension offices around the state are here to help. As of May 15, 9,500 gallons and 22,000 masks have been delivered to 13,000+ farmworkers statewide in a 10 day period! 

For Ulster County Farm Businesses

At this time we we are no longer taking reuqests for hand sanitzer or masks. Please check this website periodically to see if we re-open the requests.

If you have a farm in New York State that is not in Ulster County, please visit cce.cornell.edu to find contact information for your Extension office and information on product distribution.

CCE Ulster thanks the  Rondout Valley Growers Association for their assistance in the distribution of supplies!
