Adirondack Harvest Festival
September 16, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
This year’s festival includes a morning hike hosted by Champlain Area Trail; an awesome farmers’ market drawing together farmers from across the Champlain Valley to showcase their harvest bounty; agricultural demonstrations by farmers and local organizations on topics ranging from sustainable beekeeping to sausage and cheese making, wine and cider production, the use of ancient grains, soap making; films by local filmmakers; exhibits on topics such as good agricultural practices, historical barn and farmhouse architecture, a history of agriculture in the Champlain Valley. There will be live music, breweries, food trucks, and an organic pig roastN. A mid afternoon roundtable discussion of the economic challenges of small-scale farming is a festival highlight. This year we will be looking at the future, bringing together farms, chefs, and other purchasers of local food to discuss concrete ways to improve coordination and expand markets.
