  • A new website launched Monday is aimed at drawing tourists and spark economic growth through agritourism.
    CNY Fresh invites guests to experience the Flavors of Central New York through produce, farms, markets and farm-to-table restaurants and food-related festivals across a 10-county region.
    Counties include Herkimer, Madison and Oneida, and the website lists specific farms or markets locations and hours of operation.
    “This campaign will positively impact local and state sales tax revenue as well as occupancy tax receipts collected throughout the participating counties,” said Kelly Blazosky, president of Oneida County Tourism and chair of the Central New York Vacation Region, in a news release.
    Blazosky added that it further sustains the 34,090 tourism jobs and 17,754 agriculture jobs in the region.
