Green pastures and a temperate climate make Wyoming County #1 for dairy and #1 in New York State for maple production with significant corn, bean, berry, apple, and potato crops too. In addition, our proximity to several universities specializing in agriculture and engineering has made Wyoming County a front-runner in the development of precision agriculture, helping farmers optimize production through sustainable and affordable methods. Significant companies already calling Wyoming County home are Morton Salt and Creative Food ingredients.
Wyoming County's food processing industry has grown by more than 50% since 2010, thanks to low costs of doing business, a highly skilled workforce and easy access to key ingredients. Our capacity for growth remains strong with excellent opportunities for companies expanding manufacturing capabilities and for private-label and contract terms.
"In Wyoming County there is a very diverse agricultural economy and with that comes a large network of supporting businesses and entities such as the Wyoming County Industrial Development Agency that creates great opportunity for expansion and growth. This network of resources has helped two of our agribusiness companies expand this year."
