CHENANGO COUNTY – Assemblyman Clifford W. Crouch (R-Bainbridge) on Wednesday announced he has been named as a member of the New York Farm Bureau’s prestigious 2014 “Circle of Friends” for his support of New York agriculture and the NY and local Farm Bureaus.
“I am always thankful for the opportunity and privilege to be recognized for this distinctive honor,” said Crouch. “As a former dairy farmer, I can personally attest to the importance of New York’s agriculture industry and local family farms. It’s good to see that many families are now branching out and doing part of their grocery shopping at local farms for dairy, produce and other products. Farms are a major driving force and contributor to local economies here in Upstate New York and I will always continue to advocate for and support our family farmers and New York’s agriculture industry.”
