Fresh from county farms

Local growers show their stuff to top chefs in Cleveland area


The Cleveland chefs at the meeting were treated to samples from each purveyor, McElroy said.

“This was so important,” she said. “Expanding our circle of those looking to buy locally is key because we have great things happening out here and many people are looking for the good, fresh, unique, farm-raised, small batch products.”

McElroy said she won’t stop until everyone takes notice of the hard work and excellent results of Ashtabula County farmers.

“I am working to put Ashtabula County out there as a leader in local produce,” she said. “I have been making connections to work with entrepreneurs and others to launch businesses in the local food and sustainable agriculture arena.”

McElroy said she is excited to add producers and growers to the list of outstanding purveyors in Ashtabula County.

Farmers, vintners, and producers of food and food-based products can call McElroy at 645-5059 for more information.
