August 1 Farm Hour

On this evenings Farm Hour Pure Catskills director Challey Comer calls in to tell us all about current and upcoming Pure Catskills initiatives.

Pure Catskills, a branding and buy local campaign, is sponsored by the Watershed Agricultural Council in collaboration with farmers and purveyors of fresh food across Delaware, Greene, Otsego, Schoharie, Sullivan and Ulster in New York state. Support for this project comes from Pure Catskills members, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Catskill Mountain Foundation, and New York City Department of Environmental Protection. When farms thrive, our communities benefit in many ways. Pure Catskills farms are located on farmland that protects clean drinking water for 9 million New Yorkers. These farms grow and harvest crops as part of a world-renowned innovative partnership focusing on healthy, working farmland and the water protection practices it takes to keep streams and reservoirs safe.
