Cornell Cooperative Extension Training Center


Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County is offering a second series of homesteading classes this fall at 6 p.m. on Thursdays at its training center, 4487 Lake Ave., Lockport.

Meat the farmer will be offered Dec. 1.

More and more people are interested in purchasing meat directly from a farmer, but the whole process can be confusing. This workshop will help participants explore this topic in order to make responsible meat purchases and will include a panel discussion with local meat producers. Enjoy a taste of local meat along with local wines throughout the evening. The cost is $15.

Participants must preregister and pre-pay for each class and class sizes are limited.
