The public will be able to meet Northern New York farmers, food processors, wine and cider makers and chefs at the fifth annual Food from the Farm event from 2 to 5 p.m. March 7 at the Plattsburgh Recreation Center gym.
Visitors will be able to sample and buy locally-grown or produced foods, wine and cider; pick up recipes and gardening tips; meet local food producers, and support the local economy and food industry. Products for sale may include crops such as carrots, beets and potatoes; winter greens, frozen meat, maple, honey, wine and hard cider.
Anyone who would like a supply of fresh local food throughout the growing season will be able to meet farmers offering Community Supported Agriculture subscriptions and purchase a membership for 2015.
This family-friendly event includes Cornell Cooperative Extension nutrition educators providing tips on using local food year-round, and 4-H Youth doing cooking demonstrations sponsored by the Produced in New York Project.
Food from the Farm is coordinated by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Clinton County, Adirondack Harvest, and Master Gardener volunteers. Unlimited sampling, door prizes and helpful information are all included in the admission of $5 per adult, $20 per family, 5 years and under free.
