*Cornell Ag Experiment Farms provide all of our fresh potatoes, winter squash and corn in season and extended into January; We purchase local and regional produce, local dairy and apples; we purchase some MSC certified fish for 2 of our big units. The local beef program was reduced to using local beef burgers in two large retail units.
