Why Choose Lewis County?

It's the Natural Choice.

With access to ample water, excellent agricultural soils, rolling hills, vast farmlands and forests, abundance of maple trees, locally produced milk, and more, food & beverage companies can find an easy fit in Lewis County.  Lewis County milk is sold through various dairy cooperatives, which in turn, much of that milk is processed at the local Kraft Heinz Philadelphia Cream Cheese and String Cheese plant, and some is processed at other neighboring plants such as Fage Yogurt in Johnstown, NY, Great Lakes Cheese in Adams, NY, and small producers like Black River Valley Natural in Lyons Falls, NY.  Maple syrup and maple syrup products, famous Croghan Bologna, goat milk and goat cheese, and local honey are just a few of the many food companies you will find in Lewis County.
