2019 Farmer-Neighbor Dinner

Cattaraugus County Farmer-Neighbor Dinner

The Cattaraugus County Agricultural and Farmland Protection Board, along with the Cattaraugus County Department of Economic Development, Planning and Tourism, the Cattaraugus County Farm Bureau, the Cattaraugus County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Southern Tier West Regional Planning and Development Board will host the 8th Annual Cattaraugus County Farmer-Neighbor Dinner on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at the West Valley Fire Hall, 9091 NY 240, West Valley, NY.

Cattaraugus County is home to a vibrant and diverse agricultural industry. Good communication is essential to developing and maintaining good relationships between farm and non-farm neighbors. This event is a way to bring the County’s farmers and their neighbors together for a night of fellowship and understanding. It will also be a way for the County’s farmers and businesses to showcase what they have to offer each other.

The dinner is prepared from all locally grown items from around Cattaraugus County and surrounding areas.

At the 2018 dinner there were over 324 attendees and over 30 sponsors.
