It was sponsored by the American Farmland Trust.

Senator Ritchie, who chairs the Senate Agriculture Committee, was one of the featured speakers at the rally where New York’s agricultural leaders advocated using more locally produced food.

She described her efforts to convince state agencies to buy more New York produced food products after she noticed milk from Texas was being sold at the Empire Plaza in Albany to state employees.
