N.Y. Farm Stands May Now Sell Wine

Those visiting North and South Fork farm stands for fresh fruits and veggies will now be able to also buy local wine. On Monday, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation that now makes it legal for farm stands to each sell wine from two local wineries that are located within 20 miles of the stand. The legislation Cuomo said aims to help promote "New York’s wine industry across the state and beyond, boosting tourism, local economies and job growth." (Newsday)
