"What the heck is this and how do I cook it?" Those were the words overheard at the Farmers' Market that inspired Gail Brill to start a Festival. Seeing the disconnect between what area farmers where bringing to the market and the consumers lack of knowledge about what and how to cook it, became the inspiration for the Farm 2 Fork Festival, now in it's 7th year.
Gail Brill is the Founding Director of the Adirondack Green Circle, a local group that focuses on advocacy for small scale agriculture and inspiring sustainable living practices in the Tri-Lakes region of the Adirondacks. Though Gail has stepped down as the lead organizer and the Green Circle has been dissolved, the festival continues on with the same spirit. Since it's inception, the Festival has grown and for the last 3 years has partnered with TasteNY, which has allowed local distillers, vintners and brewers to join us. It's a great day to celebrate all the local goodness that surrounds our region. We hope to see you there!
