Fulton/Montgomery Farmers set for Farm to Table Tour: Sunday, July 30th
During the peak of summer harvest, local farms will welcome visitors, showcase and sell products, provide tours, and host other farm specific activities and demonstrations at the Inaugural Farm to Table Tour, scheduled for Sunday, July 30th, from 10am-4pm.
This is a “self-guided” tour, meaning you choose your route and the farms you wish to stop at in Fulton and Montgomery County. Maps will be provided on-line and in-person to help guests plan and navigate their day.
Co-Chair Erika Gogis says: “In a world that is 6 generations removed from farming, the Farm To Table Tour is the perfect opportunity for folks to get back to their roots! No matter your food preferences, the Farm To Table Tour will surely link you up with a local farmer or small business that has goods you’re looking for.”
Gogis is the CEO/owner of the Plaid Farm Store, located on 6419 State Highway 30, Amsterdam. The Plaid Farm Store carries a variety of baked goods, produce, and meats all sourced from local businesses and farmers.
The farm to table team is extremely excited to build on the success from last year and showcase their farms and products. The goal is to create lasting farm to consumer relationships and provide education on the importance of local agriculture.
Co-Chair Rebecca Ferry says: “People have learned that big stores might not have what you need. Farm To Table Tour will introduce you to your neighbors that have been there for years that you might have missed, and build relationships you can trust and value for the future.”
Ferry is the Owner/CEO of DreamRoad Farm Store, located on 193 LaGrange Road, Johnstown. DreamRoad features local products and beef from their own farm on property, and items from area farms.
The Plaid Farm Store and Dreamroad will be participating in the event, along with 27 more farm to table businesses.
