Farm to Table Tour: To Benefit UUVA
I love learning about fellow NYS and Northeast farmers and artisans. All part of the effort for consumers to Know Your Food. It is just as important to see the people work and the environment as it is to know the location. We promote and support local vendors and producers through our upickcsa.com. We spend time going to the farm and seeing the process. Only five farms are part of this tour - featuring Wrobel Farm in Bridgewater, us- Ambrosia Farms, Dutch Girl Cheese in Leonardsville, Poplar Hedge Farm and The Captain's Grove in West Winfield. Here is a list of all the local farms in the Upper Unadilla Valley I can think of - they include:
Ambrosia Farms - upickcsa.com, hay & woodwork, Horse & Hound Rescue
Bates Farm - Ayrshire cattle
Dutch Girl Cheese - artisan cheese maker
Poplar Hedge Farm - dairy goats and artisan cheese maker
The Captain's Grove - maple syrup
Wrobel Farm - garlic, hops, corn
Haar Family Farm - eggs
Fiddle Tree Farm - veggies and orchard
Aaron Amish Farm - strawberries, baked goods, and veggies
Spooner - lamb and sheep
Your $10 ticket will benefit Upper Unadilla Valley Association whose work has brought attention to preservation of historic homes and natural resources in our area. Some farms will give out free samples. We are proud to be able to participate and let people know the work we do on the farm to raise heirloom veggies and build artisan custom woodwork as well as preserve our old growth forest, natural resources, open land, and great and loving care of our domestic and farm animals.
We grow sustainably, preserve open spaces & ecosystems, care for animals, support the arts, facilitate local products & economies. A large part of our work is philanthropic, our Horse, Hound, & Farm Rescue's mission is adopting hound dogs, wild horses, and supporting other family farms. We work in concert with wildlife preservation, artistic creations, and horticultural traditions. We were awarded a Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education grant in 2005.
