GREENWICH, N.Y. — The Christmas Tree Farmers’ Association of NY (CTFANY) is pleased to announce that its members have received certification in New York State’s Grown & Certified program.
“Because we have always provided quality trees for our customers, being NY Grown & Certified further ensures them that their NYS-grown tree has met the highest standards,” said Ann Zywiczynski, owner of Country Pine Farm in Holland, NY. “It is a way for us to promote our dedication to quality as a Christmas tree grower.”
The New York State Grown & Certified program makes it easy for consumers to identify local, safely handled, and environmentally responsible agricultural products. This voluntary program is a cooperative effort among producers, processors, wholesalers, retailers, restaurants, and the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets to meet consumer demand for high-quality food and agricultural products.
Founded in 1953, the Christmas Tree Farmers’ Association of New York (CTFANY) has as its mission to empower members in the development of the real Christmas tree industry. CTFANY provides information and opportunities for its members that include national visibility and stature, quality production, preservation, education, pride in our products, and customer satisfaction.
