According to iloveny.com:

"Whether you're craving fresh dairy and produce, want to sample some native New York maple syrup, fresh from the bakery cider donuts, or are tempted to travel one of our many beverage trails, New York state products can satisfy your desires.

“Taste NY” is a unique brand to highlight New York agricultural products at special events, tourism destinations and stores throughout the state.

Throughout the year, food and beverage “trails” make it easy to discover what the great restaurant chefs already know: nothing beats homegrown, hand-crafted and local food and beverages. Plus, a new statewide initiative, Taste NY, offers at-a-glance info and links to New York farms, orchards, wineries, breweries, distilleries and other food and beverage producers that sell directly to the public."
