Mercer’s Dairy in Boonville was among the New York food and beverage producers to showcase a sampling of their products on Capitol Hill at the 15th annual New York Farm Day in Washington D.C.
U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, was the host, according to an announcement from the senator’s office.
Mercer’s Dairy offered its Lemon Sparkling and Cherry Merlot wine ice creams, the announcement said.
