Adirondack Harvest, a regional program of Cornell Cooperative Extension in Essex County, hosts a Harvest Festival each September. In the past, we’ve held a large community event at the Essex County Fairgrounds in Westport, NY, but also for the past two years have instead featured a combination virtual/socially distanced farm tour celebration of regional local agriculture. This was a mix of covid-safe public venues and online activities. Typical attendance at either type of event has been in the thousands.
In 2022, our plan is to bring back the in-person festival on the fairgrounds on September 24 with our huge farmers’ market, local brew tent, food, music, games, workshops, and more. In addition, we’ll be working with the Northern New York Cuisine Trails to have an “Open Farm Weekend”, coinciding with the International Cuisine Trail Conference scheduled for the end of August. This means that we are going from one large annual event to two large events this year and we are counting on our sponsors to help us make it happen.
Your support helps us reach thousands of consumers to help promote direct-market agriculture in the Adirondack Region. Our goal is to guarantee accessibility for all by keeping these events free to the public. Your donation will allow us to do just that while providing a valuable educational service that supports direct market farming in the North Country. Your one sponsorship contribution will apply to both events, meaning with one contribution, you will receive twice the recognition.
