Eating and drinking locally feels really, really, really good. And luckily for us, New York State produces some of the best food and beverages around. 

Did you know? New York State has an official eat local, drink local program called Taste NY. Since launching back in 2013, this program has created so many opportunities for farms and local companies to showcase products grown, produced, and processed in NYS.
