Gillibrand Hosts Farm Day

U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is hosting Farm Day at 5:30 p.m. today in the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C.

Farm Day brings together producers of New York’s award-winning wines, farm-fresh products and seafood, as well as leading restaurateurs from across New York state to showcase some of New York’s very best.

“Farm Day is an opportunity for farmers, vintners, restaurateurs and producers across the state to remind Americans of all that the State of New York has to offer,” Gillibrand said. 

“From our dairy farms to specialty crops, vineyards to fine dining, Farm Day allows New York to show some of its best qualities and all we have to offer, all in one location in Washington, D.C. These displays encourage agricultural growth and promote good nutrition as essential parts of New York’s health, tourism, and our statewide economy,”‎ she said.
