Farm 2 Fork: Slow Food, Long Life
FlavorFest at The Wild Center
Stomping out the Saranac 6 – Week 2 – St. Regis Mountain

For the past few years there has been a unique event that is offered here in Saranac Lake, New York… The Farm 2 Fork Festival! This festival shows home cooks how to use local, fresh products in their everyday meals. There are demonstrations, workshops and of course lots of tasting with local ingredients. It’s held each year in RiversidePark at the end of summer (the first Saturday in September, or last in August this year).

Beautiful Festival Day!

The Green Circle and The Ausable Valley Grange sponsor this event. Gail Brill, Adirondack Green Circle’s founding director said “This year’s Farm 2 Fork will be better than every. This event not only educates, but enhances community spirit and support of local farmers.” The Adirondack Green Circle works to advocate the local farming community.

This year’s theme for the Farm 2 Fork festival is ‘Slow Food, Long Life’.  It is being held at Riverside Park in Saranac Lake from 9am to 2pm on Saturday, August 31st. The tickets for this event are $10 and include lots of great stuff! It allows a taste at each of the eight stations, hand-cranked ice cream, a drink at the Artisan Beverage Bar and new this year, Pickle Bar! If you happen to still be hungary or simply want some more you can purchase a ticket for the ‘Locavore Grill’ where Jason Brill and company will be serving up grilled sausages and Eat ‘n Meet pulled pork sandwiches. Yummy!

At 9am they will start with their guest speakers. First will be local author, Dana Fast demonstrating how to take that head of Farmer’s Market cabbage and turn it into delicious sauerkraut. Then Rose Bartiss will talk about raising goats and Nutritionist Amy Kohanski and Fledging Crow Farm’s AND Heart Healthy New York’s Brittany Harris will also give talks about healthy food choices and cooking from your Farmer’s Market shopping bag. This is a great opportunity to learn how easy it is to cook healthy meals for your family with local ingredients.
