State Senator Hugh T. Farley (R, C, I - Schenectady) was honored to be named part of the New York State Farm Bureau's Circle of Friends for the 2012 Legislative Session.
Senator Farley has been a friend of the Farm Bureau for numerous years and this year's honor reaffirms his continued support for the farm community.
"We must remember agriculture is one of New York's top industries and is vital to our economy," Senator Farley. "Farms create jobs, generate significant economic activity and contribute to the tax revenue. Agritourism is also a wonderful asset to this area. We need to support our farmers as they support our area's economy and growth."
Senator Farley will be given the award at the NYS Farm Bureau's 2013 State Lobby Day in Albany.
