2021 *Virtual* Open Farm Days - Popular Local Producers

  • Wednesday, March 3, 2021, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Three popular local food processors who make their products with ingredients sourced from area farms will be featured in our next Virtual Open Farm Days tour, Wednesday, March 3rd from 6:00-7:00pm.

This online event offers a behind-the-scenes look at our regional food network through on-site video segments, interspersed with LIVE conversations and Q&A with the processors and their ‘partner’ farmers, all of whom will be on the line during this event. Processors profiled in this presentation reflect the diverse range of value-added food products now being created and sold in Central New York and beyond:

Food & Ferments in Truxton, NY uses locally grown produce to make sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles and other fermented tonics and drinks. Their products are sold at farmers’ markets in Central New York and Philadelphia.

Indian Milk & Honey in Freeville, NY uses local honey and milk from Twin Oaks Dairy in Truxton, NY to create a probiotic yogurt Lassi called "That Indian Drink," plain and seasoned ghees, and other essentials for South Asian cooking.

Wide Awake Bakery in Trumansburg, NY collaborates with certified organic grain farmers at Oechsner Farms in Newfield, and with millers at Farmer Ground Flour also in Trumansburg, to produce all manner of artisan baked goods that are sold wholesale, and direct to consumers via a bread CSA.
