The state of agriculture in Onondaga County has seen significant changes over the years. Through it all, local agriculture remains a critical part of our economy, food system, and landscape. Our county is gifted with highly productive agricultural soils, a legacy of farming operations and know-how, and an environment that supports a highly diverse array of crops and opportunities to engage with the local food system. The Onondaga County Agriculture and Farmland Protection Plan, an update to the 1997 plan, reports on the state of our agriculture and is a framework for both protecting this farmland and supporting agricultural viability.
