Tioga County Agriculture

Tioga County’s diverse agriculture industry encompasses over one-third of the county land mass with businesses in every town and municipality. Direct sales of local products generate $36.7 million annually which translates into nearly $100 million community dollars as well as full or part time employment of 536 people.

Agriculture in the county continues to change with a decrease in the number of traditional dairy farms which is offset by the growth of farms marketing a range of products such as vegetables, fruits, meats, poultry, fiber products, timber products, maple syrup, and other specialty farm items.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tioga County is dedicated to helping you, the farmer, succeed.  Our services include soil testing advice and recommendations, disease and insect diagnosis, connecting you to markets, grants, business planning, and more.
