New York is allocating more than $6 million to expand access to New York agricultural products through the Taste NY program. According to Governor Cuomo's office, the funding will help promote the wide variety of foods and beverages grown and produced in the state, making them readily available and recognizable to New Yorkers and consumers around the globe. The budget also supports the NYS Grown & Certified program by continuing funding for key environmental initiatives which assist farmers in participating in the certification program.
