The Catskills Food Hub is an exciting opportunity for farmers, food producers and end-users.
Catskills Food Hub, located in Liberty, New York, is an aggregation and distribution center for local and regional products including fresh produce, packaged meat and dairy products, and shelf-stable pantry items. The Food Hub is a non-profit with a mission of education and working with local farmers and producers to acquire the knowledge and safety standards necessary to expand their retail and wholesale markets, thus growing the agriculture economy in the region. Working with our community partners, we are committed to improving the viability of local agriculture, access to fresh food, and the health outcomes for Sullivan county and the region.
Through Local Food Marketplace, an online sales platform for hubs, Catskills Food Hub provides a streamlined way for producers to sell their items to a far larger customer base. The market is integrated with a professional transportation option, allowing farmers and producers to focus on their core business, reducing time and energy spent on marketing and distribution logistics.
Project partners include Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County, the County of Sullivan Industrial Development Agency, Hudson Valley Agribusiness Development Corporation, Sullivan Renaissance, producers, and small business owners.
