In fall 2016, Cornell Cooperative Extension of St. Lawrence County completed the construction of a commercial shared-use and teaching kitchen at the Extension Learning Farm in Canton.
The Kitchen provides a broad platform for Extension’s educational programming in the areas of agriculture, nutrition and youth development, and also provides local producers with a commercial kitchen environment for light food processing and development of value-added products. The kitchen is also available for rent to vendors with other food businesses, such as caterers, bakers, food trucks and more. The space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The facility is fully equipped with cookware and utensils as well as variety of specialized equipment.
The facility has been made possible with the support of the USDA Rural Business Development Grant program and NYS Workforce Development Institute.
