to the New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets' website.
Our mission is to foster a competitive food and agriculture industry
that benefits producers and consumers alike. Agriculture makes up
one-quarter of the State's land area and contributes immensely to
the quality of life in New York State by generating economic activity
and producing wholesome products to nourish our families. We work
diligently to promote a viable agricultural industry, foster agricultural
environmental stewardship, and safeguard our food supply. This website
was designed to help you learn about the many services and specialized
programs the Department has to offer. Take a look for yourself,
and if there is anything that you cannot locate or requires further
clarification, please don't hesitate to contact us
via this website or at 1-800-554-4501. Thanks for your support of New York's food
and agricultural industries!
