New Tool Created by USDA to Help People Find Out About Local Federal Ag Projects
Go to http://www.usda.gov/maps/maps/kyfcompassmap.htm to find the Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food compass. It's a map tool for finding federal projects being done throughout the country and what the money is being used for. Many of the projects deal with the buy local theme or buying foods from local farmers.
You can zoom in on the map to any area -- even Central New York. Check it out and click on the little dots for information.
