The Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort with Generations Restaurant
Farm Tour Weekend
September 7-9, 2012
& read about past tours:
The Farm to Fork Movement is sweeping the nation, consumers are more often turning away from industrial agriculture and turning towards local farms and suppliers. The health benefits aren't the only reason we love this movement. Eating locally is also important for the future of your local economy and environment!
Generations Restaurant and Chef David Hunt in particular, have been a leader in the F2F movement here in the Adirondacks. Chef Hunt bases his menu seasonally on what he can dig up (no pun intended) from the farms in our area. From local bison (buffalo) to local cheeses and vegetables, you're sure to find a taste of the Adirondacks at every meal.
We invite your family to enjoy a weekend of wellness, surrounded by the Adirondack High Peaks and explore what Community Supported Agriculture is all about.
Your Farm Tour Weekend will include a Welcome reception on Friday evening at Snowslip Farm featuring hors d'oeurves and beverages, horse demonstration and a meet and greet with the farmers.
Saturday afternoon our group will meet in Generations Restaurant for a brief discussion before departing to the following farms for tours and an opportunity to purchase food, or a CSA .
Atlas Hoofed It Farm - Supplier of grass fed beef, pork and free-range chicken.
Tucker Farms - Known for strawberry and blueberry picking, and the popular "Corn maze"
Edgley Farm Bison- supplier of Bison meat - one of the leanest, healthiest meats you can consume!
The tour will conclude at Tucker's Farm, where Chef Hunt will host a BBQ for all participants, focusing on the meat from the farms visited!
