The Farm Stand opens for its 2015 season today. Seven days a week from 9am to 6pm the Farm Stand offers great fresh produce grown on the Farm Hub alongside other local food products.
“The Farm Stand is a great place to learn more about what’s going on at the Farm Hub this season and to purchase produce grown on the farm,” says Brooke Pickering-Cole, Manager of Community Relations for the Local Economies Project, sponsors of the Hudson Valley Farm Hub.
Farm Hub produce sold at the Farm Stand is grown using organic practices like OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) approved sprays, composted chicken manure, and mulch as well as hand and mechanical weeding. Locally sourced products including maple syrup, yogurt, cheese, pasta, and much more are also available. Visual displays provide monthly updates on the Farm Hub, including glimpses this month of the market garden that supplies the Farm Stand.
Two new Farm Hub team members will be staffing the Farm Stand this year alongside Loretta Gill. Katy Kondrat has been active in Hudson Valley agriculture for over 10 years, managing farmers markets and CSAs in New Paltz and Kingston. Kathleen Reynolds has a background in marketing and retail, and when she’s not at the Farm Stand also works for Edible Hudson Valley.
We hope to see you at the Farm Stand!
