The goal of Harvest Connection is to connect consumers with local producers and their products throughout Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, and Washington counties. Our website and now app, make it easy for consumers to find farms and farmers markets closest to them. Check out the Harvest Connection website here: https://www.harvestconnection-ny.com/
We had a successful press conference for the release of the Harvest Connection app on November 20th at Engel’s Acres in Brunswick. The app is ready for all Apple and Android users to download from their respective stores!

If you are a currently a producer in our database, we have promotional materials for you (brochures, palm cards, and a metal sign for your storefront). Please contact the CCE office at (518) 272-4210 to schedule a time for you to pick them up at our office or for us to drop them off to you.

If you or someone you know is not a part of Harvest Connection, but would like to know how to join, reach out to Kayela (email@example.com). This is a great opportunity to not only promote your business, but to support local products!
We are still looking for producers to be a part of the Harvest Connection Steering Committee! The focus of this committee will be to help further the development of this project and keeping the community engaged now that the grant has ended. The committee will meet a few times during the year, and we will mostly stay in contact virtually, by phone, or by email. If you would like more information about this committee or would like to join, email Kayela!
