Commissioner Ball, a Schoharie resident, parent, grandparent and local farmer, said in an official March 22 statement:

"Today, I am privileged to join fellow farmers in New York and across the country as we celebrate National Agriculture Day and recognize the invaluable contributions of New York’s farmers to our State and to the nation.

"It is because of their dedication to our industry that farming remains an honored tradition benefitting all New Yorkers—not just because they provide the food that we serve our families, but also because of their significant contributions to the strength of the State’s economy and vibrancy of our communities.

"Our nearly 36,000 farms are among the nation's top producers of more than 30 commodities, growing and crafting unique products for consumers around the globe. From plants and flowers, to apples and grapes, maple and dairy, New York’s agricultural industry is synonymous with quality and diversity and is responsible for billions of dollars in sales each year with an even far greater economic impact.

"Our farmers embody the spirit of this great State through their resiliency, strength and innovation. Working together, we have made great strides to boost New York agriculture and set a path forward toward future growth and success." READ THE FULL STATEMENT
