Overview:  

The Finger Lakes Meat Project is a regional initiative in New York State to grow the freezer trade (sales of meat in bulk quantities such as whole, half and quarter animals) to benefit livestock farmers and consumers. The Project consists of educational efforts, an online directory of farms called The Meat Suite and two community freezers in Central NY called The Meat Locker.  On this archived webinar recording, you can learn more about the project, how it got started and its value to local farms.

Speakers: Matt LeRoux, Cornell Cooperative Extension
