Gov. Hochul's Initiatives to Provide Economic Boost to Farmers and Strengthen NY’s Food Supply Chain
"Governor Kathy Hochul today announced several major proposals to provide an economic boost to farmers and strengthen New York’s food supply chain as part of the 2023 State of the State. New York’s agricultural industry has faced a number of challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which also brought to light vulnerabilities across the local food system. The Governor unveiled plans to bolster demand for New York State foods and dramatically increase the purchasing of local farm products, encourage investments to modernize New York’s farms, and build an agricultural workforce pipeline for the future."
