ALBANY (AP) -

New York’s wines, beers, spirits, seafood and farm-fresh foods will be featured in a promotional event on Capitol Hill Tuesday to remind national leaders that New York is a big-time agricultural state.

Since its inaugural launch in 2002, New York Farm Day has become one of the most popular events on Capitol Hill, with attendance normally exceeding 700 guests, including senators, the New York Congressional delegation, administration agricultural specialists and members of the Washington media.
