Capital Project Progress

After a year of continued searching and multiple purchase offers, the Board of Directors is pleased to have found a suitable property to become the new home for CCE Erie. As of this writing, 15 acres of land in the Town of Orchard Park are under contract for purchase and we are beginning the process to obtain the necessary zoning approvals prior to finalizing the agreement. Our friends at the Providence Farm Collective (PFC) have entered into a contract to purchase property next door to our purchase. We look forward to being neighbors with PFC and to exploring ways to enhance our collaboration to serve the farm community in Erie County. We have much work ahead to design and build a facility that will meet CCE Erie’s current and future needs. We are hopeful that the multi-year process to find land for a new home is in the final stages and that we will soon begin the process of planning and fundraising to build the facility. This will ultimately be an effort that all CCE Erie stakeholders will have a role in, so get ready as we will need your help!
