Nichols, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Tioga Downs Casino announced a new program on Thursday designed to support local agriculture in New York State.

The program, called "Farm to Table" gives support to New York State farmers and food producers by purchasing products from them.

"We're part of the New York State economy. We depend on people to do business with us and if we can give business back to New York State that helps everybody," said Bill French, Senior Director of Food & Beverage services at Tioga Downs.

Some of the perks of "Farm to Table" include a New York State craft beer program, a summer Farmer's Market, promotion of New York wines, and special racing events featuring New York food.
