The New York Farm Bureau Foundation Fundraising Feasts are held annually, and rotate throughout the different regions of New York State in order for this event to reach more people and to gain the support of county Farm Bureaus in the region, which is essential. This is an opportunity to work with, and for agricultural education, which benefits all county Farm Bureaus and they have the chance to personalize the event with their counties agricultural products. The ingredient for success is indeed the local link and support makes such a difference. This cannot happen without some “boots on the ground” and local knowledge. If you would like to help with this event, please let us know.
Now that winter has fully settled in, you want to start thinking of spring. Think of where you can find remarkable food accompanied by superb New York wines, great company, a location that is known for service, all of which provides the backdrop for a wonderful time. All of this while supporting your industry with education dollars to influence your community sounds like the New York Farm Bureau Foundation Fundraising Feast South and North.
Mark your calendars now and plan to invite your neighbors and all community members:
Feast South on Friday, May 5, 2017 at the Harbor Hotel, Watkins Glen, NY.
Feast North on Friday, May 19, 2017 at the Tailwater Lodge, by the Salmon River in Altmar, NY.
Our premier sponsor, Lamb & Webster, is already on board for the event and looking forward to providing support to agricultural education and the agricultural community.
The Harbor Hotel is known for its outstanding service and cuisine. The 2016 Feast held here utilized locally sourced ingredients and was paired with outstanding local beverages. The service and accommodations were all first class with outstanding service.
The Tailwater Lodge will host our North Feast at The Barn, a special structure for special events such as our feast that has a spectacular ceiling of rough-hewn beams that look down on an infinitely adaptable open space. Prepare yourself for a delicious and bountiful menu, special NYS wines, compliments of the NY Wine & Grape Foundation, roomy tables, sparkling silverware, crisp linens and a superb atmosphere.
