The Farm to School Program also publishes NY Farm to School News, a 4-page quarterly newsletter that highlights the wide variety of farm to school activities occurring throughout the state. It originated as a publication for the Broome-Tioga Farm to School Workgroup, whose members include food service directors, farmers, and representatives of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome, Tioga, and Cortland Counties.
