Pride of New York Program

The Pride of New York Program was developed to help promote the sale and use of locally grown agricultural products and locally processed food products.  
New York growers and food manufacturers are proud to provide a rich and diverse array of quality products, such as locally grown produce, syrups, sauces, cheese, honey, meats, pasta and baked goods.

The University of Rochester was the first college in New York State to join the Pride of New York Program!
