A FUN FUNDRAISER! Our gathering at the Jones Family Farm this past week was terrific. It began with a reception in their new cheesemaking facility, where attendees mingled while enjoying a variety of scrumptious New York State cheeses, wine, beer, and jazzy music by Kevin Hughes & band. Those that reserved for the sit-down dinner then moved to the candlelit table inside the farmhouse where Tim Hardiman and staff (of The Tailor & The Cook restaurant) served a spectacular dinner. THANKS TO ALL WHO ATTENDED, WORKED, AND HELPED. We hope to host another fundraiser event in the spring—watch this space!
DID YOU KNOW? Little Falls, NY is the historic capital of cheese of the United States! The Little Falls Cheese Festival was created to showcase New York’s artisan cheesemakers and gourmet food producers and to celebrate the historical roots of Little Falls. The first cheese exchange in the United States was in Little Falls in the 1850s, which set the price of cheese for the country and influenced the price of cheese in Europe! Read more.
