Agriculture represents one of the largest economic sectors in Clinton County with a combined output value exceeding $148,999,000 (2012). Farms create direct economic benefits, provide our residents with fresh local foods, support other local businesses across many sectors, and preserve the rural character that our residents and visitors value so highly. CCE-Clinton supports local agriculture by providing resources for farmers, and consumers, to help strengthen our local and regional food systems.
