Cooperative Extension puts a wealth of useful, research-based information at your fingertips!

CCE connects communities with Cornell research and expertise to enrich and empower New York State neighbors, local businesses, towns, and cities.

In neighborhoods, homes, workplaces, and schools, CCE educators work to empower individuals and families with raising children, saving energy and money, growing and preparing food, starting, sustaining businesses, and protecting the environment.

Each CCE office relies on county, state, and federal funds to solve local problems and strengthen communities.


*The Yates County Office Building is open to the general public from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.

In addition to what you'll find here on our website, we offer free or low-cost workshops on topics that range from starting a vegetable garden to making a home spending plan. Explore our links, check out our upcoming events, then give us a call or visit our  Education Center to learn more. We're here to help, with information -- and people -- you can trust!
