Fresh from the Lake Champlain Region
We can’t all have our own farms, so luckily our Adirondack Coast farmers are willing to share!
All about local
This winter the Westport Heritage House is hosting a family-friendly indoor activity for all ages. A monthly farmers market featuring 18+ participants will be held from 10am to 2pm on the last Saturday of each month beginning on January 28.
We got the scoop on what to expect at the region's newest not-to-miss event from organizer, Curdie Gardner. Here are some highlights:
Here’s a small sampling of the farms that will be participating and the various items they’ll have available:
- Harvest Hill Farm of Willsboro will have a wonderful selection of honey, homemade lip balms, and soaps.
- Willow Wood Farm from Ticonderoga will be on hand with pork products and Dexter beef.
- Full and By Farm will be offering up their pasture-raised chicken as well as cornmeal and flour.
- Triple Green Jade Farm which is located in the Willsboro area will be bringing their artisans breads.
- North Country Creamery in Keeseville will tempt you with their feta cheese spread and homemade crackers! This farm also makes yogurts of different flavors, cream cheese, a fresh farmer’s cheese, and a whole line of aged sharp cheeses. Their cows are 100% grassfed, non GMO, and Animal Welfare Approved Fresh Milk.
Lunch will be served up by Dacy Meadows Farm from Westport. With a focus on farm-to-table offerings, they’ll have homemade meat pies, farm fresh eggs, corn chowder, and quiche on hand. They’ll also have cookies and pie to satisfy your sweet tooth as you continue your shopping spree.
Of course, there will be must-have items like maple syrup, jams, jellies. And, although it’s not veggie season, there will be various root crops that have been stored just for winter sales.
