“There may be no better venue to showcase New York’s wine, beer and cider than at the Farm Aid 2013 concert as we celebrate the history and role of agriculture in our state and country,” Governor Cuomo said. “Not only will there be great music at the event, but also some of the best food and drink to enjoy here in New York – so I encourage concertgoers to stop by the ‘Taste NY’ tent to sample these local products and support our producers and farmers.”

“Taste NY” was launched by Governor Cuomo to highlight New York’s food and beverage industry. Its goal is to make the wide variety of foods made and grown in the state readily available and recognizable to New York residents, tourists and the world. “Taste NY” is also a major component of the Governor’s $60 million tourism campaign – the largest such campaign in decades.
