Morrisville State College recently displayed some of its tasty fare in Washington, D.C.
The college showcased an array of food samples during New York Farm Day, an annual event which boasts New York State agricultural products.
The event, sponsored by U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, brought 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.
“As a member of the Agriculture Committee, I am focused on improving the health of our economy and the health of our families,” Gillibrand said. “From rising childhood obesity and outdated nutritional standards to the economic crisis facing our dairy farmers and specialty crop farmers, agriculture issues in Washington affect families in every corner of New York. Strengthening our agricultural sector and promoting good nutrition for New Yorkers are essential to our long-term health and economic growth.”

New York is the second largest apple producing state in the United States, producing about 2.5 million bushels of apples annually. Among the 10 common varieties of apples, Cortland apples remain one of the the most popular and most produced apples in New York state. In order to ensure that our state has the best quality of apples, New York has adopted cutting edge technology in the production process; farmers across the state have pioneered the development of controlled atmosphere storage of apples and adapt new scientific and natural techniques that cut down on the usage of chemicals.
