2018

July_Small Farms rising Essex_Full and By FarmThis variation of our popular Small Farms Rising tour takes us to another area rich with developing agricultural endeavors, many of which are on historic farmsteads.

Check out the current agricultural revolution as practiced here in the Adirondacks. Hip young farmers using traditional methods and applying sustainable ideas applied to farmland worked for generations. First stop will be Reber Rock Farm, a unique two-family operation that produces meat, eggs, maple syrup and sunflower products in the Reber Valley.

Next, head over to Full & By Farm, once a dairy farm and today a bustling vegetable and livestock Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) completely powered by horses. From there travel to The Hub on the Hill—a cooperative center for processing and marketing value-added food from local farms—and enjoy lunch. Final stop is at Essex Farm, a unique, full-diet, year-round CSA, where you will enjoy a tour with the farm’s co-founder Mark Kimball, husband of author Kristin, who wrote a nationally acclaimed memoir The Dirty Life: On Food, Farming, and Love.
