Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the FY 2020 Enacted Budget includes $6.2 million to expand access to New York agricultural products through the Taste NY program, an increase of $400,000 from FY 2019.

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 and Certified program by continuing funding for key environmental programs, such as the Agricultural Nonpoint Source Pollution Control Program.

These programs assist farmers in participating in the certification program.

Currently, more than 2,450 producers are participating in New York State Grown and Certified, representing over 530,000 acres of farmland.
