Doubles Number of Cuisine Trails Across the State, Boosting the State's Growing Agritourism Industry

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the launch of six new Cuisine Trails in the North Country, doubling the number of Cuisine Trails across New York. The new network of trails, featuring 83 businesses in Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties, will boost the state's growing agritourism sector and spotlight the region's unique farms, food and beverage businesses. The announcement was made ahead of Columbus Day weekend, a traditionally busy time for tourism in New York State.

"These new Cuisine Trails highlight some of the best food and beverage producers and providers in New York," Governor Cuomo said. "They will help connect Upstate farms and businesses with visitors and local markets, boosting the North Country's economy and supporting growing trends in agritourism."

"The new Cuisine Trails will showcase the many local businesses in the North Country and highlight the great products that our farmers and craft beverage producers have to offer," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "The six trails in the area will continue to boost the agriculture industry, attracting more visitors and growing the economy of the region."
