LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commemorating the 100th Anniversary of Jones Farm
in Cornwall, New York

WHEREAS,  The agricultural industry is part of the foundation upon which
our distinct American heritage is built; New York State and  the  entire
United  States  are dependent on our agricultural industry for a variety
of food products; and
  WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative  Body  to  recognize  the
milestones of those farms which substantially contribute to the economic
vitality of their communities and the entire Empire State; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly  proud  to  commem-
orate the 100th Anniversary of Jones Farm in Cornwall, New York; and
  WHEREAS,  The  picturesque acreage of Jones Farm was purchased in 1914
from a direct descendant of Oliver Cromwell of England; and
  WHEREAS, Since its inception,  Jones  Farm  has  supplied  the  Hudson
Valley  with  homegrown  produce, fresh baked goods and the finest gifts
and decorative home accessories; and
  WHEREAS, Beginning as a dairy farm, the land of Jones  Farm  has  seen
many  changes;  the  cows gave way to a poultry and egg operation, which
led to its current orchards and gardens; and
  WHEREAS, Furthermore, the many faceted homestead which greets  custom-
ers  today  is  a  charming  country  store,  gift shop, art gallery and
bakery; and
  WHEREAS, Jones Farm continues to change and expand with the times, and
is poised for success for many years to come; and
  WHEREAS, While remaining true to its roots as a  working  farm,  Jones
Farm has also embraced the future in providing a destination for all age
groups; generations of families have been welcomed to the farm since its
doors opened a century ago; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the intent of this Legislative Body to recognize and
applaud the leaders  of  commerce  and  industry  whose  accomplishments
contribute  to  the economic health and prosperity of the communities of
the State of New York and to the quality of life of its people; and
  WHEREAS, It is with great pleasure that this Legislative Body acknowl-
edges the success of this exceptional farm and its contributions to  the
local  and  State  economies,  fully  confident that it will continue to
enjoy the sparkling successes it has experienced thus far;  now,  there-
fore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Jones Farm in Cornwall,  New  York;
and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
