Assemblyman Robert Smullen (R, C, I, SAM-Meco) showed his appreciation for local farmers in the Fulton and Montgomery counties this past weekend during the Farm to Table Tour. This tour was the first in the history of the counties. Thirty-two family farms participated in the tour. The event was created to generate a connection between farmers and consumers and raise awareness about the agricultural benefits of buying produce locally.
“Connecting local farms with local consumers is a fantastic way to create more revenue for the area and support New York’s number one industry,” Smullen said. “I take pride in the hard work our local farmers put into their products. I am glad Fulton and Montgomery counties can celebrate these family-owned farms with this new annual event.”
