INTRODUCING THE 2013 GROWN IN NY PLAN

The New York State Senate Republican Conference has introduced the “Grown in New York Plan” to strengthen family farms by expanding markets, removing obstacles, and investing in the future of farming.

The proposal would expand markets for our family farms by promoting Farmers Markets, Food Hubs and “Buy from your Backyard” programs to increase the amount of locally grown produce that is enjoyed by communities throughout the state, nation and world.

In addition to being one of the most productive agriculture industries in the country, our farmers unfortunately are among the most regulated. New York farmers can be subject to more than 20 different federal, state and local regulatory agencies.
