Clinton County Fresh Network

     The mission of the Clinton County Fresh Network is straightforward – to strengthen the local fresh food economy in Clinton County. Working towards this mission, we aim to create a viable and sustainable local food system with direct links between local farmers and local consumers, between local production and local consumption.

     In a community with such a rich agricultural heritage, we want to ensure that all citizens in Clinton County have access to nutritious, affordable, local food. At the same time, we want to provide the support that will enable local farmers to secure a living from growing and selling local, fresh food.

     In the past year we have taken small strides toward our goal of a sustainable local food system.  We now have a Clinton County Fresh Network website where you can view all of the information necessary to take part in this initiative; from grower profiles to participating local businesses the website is your ticket to all things Fresh Network.  Click here to view the Fresh Network website and feel free to contact our AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer if you have any questions.
