***NEW FOR 2018!***
JUST UP THE STREET The Cheese Festival has a new sibling–“Makers on West Main”–which is being introduced this year as the newest addition to the July 14th Cheese Festival. It will celebrate the importance of small makers of exceptional products in New York State. Expect to be surprised and delighted by what people are doing to produce upscale, handcrafted items of an amazing variety.
This lively section of the city of Little Falls has a cool vibe going on and the Cheese Festival Committee is showcasing its charms as a backdrop for a small, juried celebration of artisan vendors. You will discover makers of unique, quality products—exquisite antique buttons fashioned into contemporary jewelry, a sizzling display of graphic tee shirts, tiles and mugs focusing on Little Falls, and much, much more.
Makers booths will line the north side of West Main Street down as far as Body Siense. Shops in the area are bursting with great treasurers, many of them one-of-a-kind. Also our West End restaurants will be offering some great street food and beverages. Find a seat in the shade while music fills the air—you’re in for a treat!
WE ARE PLEASED TO INTRODUCE THE FOLLOWING “MAKERS” VENDORS—more are on deck, so please check back soon. If your business would like to join this part of the festival, please contact us ASAP!

Compared to ice cream, less air is churned into gelato, producing a creamier and denser consistency. Gelato is also a softer and more delicate product, partly because it is served at a relatively warmer temperature. These qualities allow your taste buds to experience flavors more intensely. They also account for why nutty and naturally rich ingredients often make the most exciting gelato flavors. In fact, gelato is often perceived as more flavorful and indulgent, despite its lower fat content.
Fine handcrafted serving trays, cutting and cheese boards…..made from locally harvested and milled black walnut, cherry, and maple.
Located in southern Oneida County, our upstate New York family-run farm is surrounded by beautiful vistas, vast farm acreage, majestic windmills, and the peaceful sounds of horse drawn Amish wagons and carriages.
Classifying ourselves as a “forest farm,” we concentrate on small and niche market production. Our primary offerings are with Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) forest-grown mushroom products with an emphasis on Shiitakes. We also offer grow-your-own mushroom logs.
We also have a three-acre open field that we devote to high-quality fruit, medicinal herbs, and produce that we feel cannot be achieved by farming on large acreage. As a result of this, we’ve expanded our offerings to include natural skin-care products such as calendula-based body creams, lotion bars, soaps, and lip balms.
