The 4th annual Fresh from the Farm event was held in the chambers of the Broome County Legislature.

Numerous teams including girl scouts, VINES and Citizen U Youth created delicious corn concoctions.

Legislators tasted the goodies and then a panel of judges gave out awards.

Shannon Tolomei, Christy Sherman, and Natalie Novak took part in the contest. They are members of a girl scout troop in Johnson City.

"We made corn surprise which is a corn popsicle dessert and we made that because we wanted to make something unique. You don't usually think of dessert with corn, so we decided to think outside the box," said Tolomei.

Honors given out included the ones that used the most local ingredients, had the best tasting goodies, and for best presentation.
