MORRISVILLE, N.Y. — Madison County Tourism has announced the creation of the Central New York food and beverage trail.

It connects 24 of Madison County’s farm-to-table restaurants, craft-beverage producers, and other snack and dessert vendors, “all of which source products from New York State farms,” the organization said in a news release.

Madison County Tourism is the county’s official tourism promotion agency.

“This is a great way for visitors to explore the fantastic food and beverages of Central New York,” Joan Johnson, president of Madison County Tourism, said. “We’re proud of our history, including our more than 200 years of hops heritage. Our farming remains vibrant today, with more than 830 farms in-county cultivating everything from dairy to grains and beef to bees. That’s why we’re embracing the farm-to-glass and farm-to-table movements with this trail.”

All 24 “trail stops” are offering specials in their establishments for patrons holding the official trail passport, said Johnson.

The 28-page booklet contains descriptions of each trail stop, a map of the county, and a few tips for traveling the area. Once a passport holder presents the booklet for the special offering, they’ll get a sticker for the establishment’s page. Passports are available for free at each trail stop.

“This trail is unique in that it links 24 farm-sourcing establishments that are all offering specials,” said Johnson. “We invite all to stay for a few days, explore our trail responsibly, and see first-hand how delicious the food and beverages of Madison County are.”

To view all 24 trail stops or request a free copy of the Central New York food and beverage trail passport, visit www.CNYFoodandBeverageTrail.com, the organization said.
